West Point’s Community Theatre was organized in 1968 and presented its first stage production, Harvey, in October of that year.
In the past 10 years, the organization has experienced revitalization, holding regular performances on its stage at the West Point City Auditorium. In 2008, the theatre leased the auditorium from the city of West Point after another facility was built to serve community functions.
Volunteers worked to renovate the former auditorium into a space for performing arts and a 250-seat movie theater. In May 2009, Monsters vs. Aliens was shown as the theatre’s premiere movie.
Currently, the theatre shows movies on weekends with show times on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, as well as a Sunday matinee. Performing arts include a spring musical, summer melodrama and fall play. Traveling performances also make appearances at West Point Community Theatre.
The theatre, which was built in 1911, is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places.
