Fargo Theatre

Construction began on the Fargo theater on September 15, 1925. Located at 314 Broadway, formerly the site of a fruit store known as the Idlekope Building, the theater took six months for completion. In the 1980's the theater was restored to its original glory. It is the area's only remaining vintage movie palace with a vaudeville stage. The theater serves as a multipurpose facility with capacity for film showings, live productions and meetings, and is a registered historic landmark. It also houses a restored theater pipe organ, the "Mighty Wurlitzer." See their website for more information and history. I remember the theater from the 50's and 60's. It was the best theater in town. I usually sat in the balcony and probably saw a movie there almost every week.
