Eureka Opera House History
That elegance of the Opera House was appreciated in the mining town of Eureka in the 1880s and early 1900s. Today, it is appreciated for its rich history as a social center. In the 1880s, plays, masquerade balls, dances, operas, concerts, and other social events were held in the Opera House. With the introduction of movies in 1915, the Opera House was renamed the Eureka Theater. First silent movies, then "talkies" were shown. Movies were last shown at the Opera House in the late 1950s. The official grand opening of the Eureka Opera House was held in January 1881, with a showing of the drama, "Forget Me Not."
