1938 - 1993The Chief Theater opened on January 5, 1938. Admission to the first show, "Bad Man of Brimstone", was 49 cents. The downtown landmark provided entertainment until it was closed in 1982. The Chief Foundation began work on refurbishing the buildings in 1985. On March 20, 1993 a fire gutted the building. All that remains of the Chief Theater is this tile mosaic reassembled on this spot, and the neon sign.
