The Hollywood Theater made it’s debut on September 5, 1937, with the film Lost Horizon staring Ronald Colman. It was listed with a seat capacity of 400, but by 1950, it was listed with 456 seats.

The Theater closed in the early 1980s. Then reopened as a small luge making business. In 2006, it was purchased by Cory and Siera Hanf, who renovated it into a twin screen cinema opened seasonally. In June 2021, Norman Jabaut and Jason Andrew purchased the theater with plans to return the theater to a single proscenium stage.
