The Midland Theatre opened its doors on December 20, 1928 at 630pm and did not disappoint the anxious and excited crowd waiting to see new theatre. The Midland and its Spanish architecture continued to thrill movie seekers for over five decades.

Finally, the doors closed in 1978 amid decreasing attendance and a deteriorating building. After sitting closed for 14 years, The Longaberger Company, famous for its seven foot tall headquarters shaped in the form of a basket, purchased the Midland and restored the theatre.

Today, the Midland Theatre stands better than ever providing various forms of entertainment. For more information, see the Midland Theatre website. Here are is a photo of the Midland Theatre at night. 09-13
