The original Opera House was built in 1882
C.L. Hoover Opera House; A History
In 1898 a fire burned down the original Opera House
9 months after the fire, the Opera House was rebuilt with the Iconic clock tower and native stone theatre.
Over the years the building would serve as a fire department and city offices
It would even serve as a movie theater
Eventually, the building fell into disrepair and sat empty for years.
What was once a palace for the arts, had been forgotten.
But the Opera House's heart still beat, and through the heroic efforts and generosity of the community, restoration began.
For almost the entirety of 2007, the Opera House was under construction.
In 2008 the Opera House's renovations were complete!
The renovations honored the classic style of the building...
The C.L. Hoover Theater seats over 400 guests comfortably.
The Walker Lobby greets Opera House guests with class.
A state of the art lighting and sound booth were added.
The beautiful montgomery venue is perfect for receptions and classes
Modern dressing rooms for both men and women keep actors comfortable.
