The Wildey Theatre can make a great addition to your next tour itinerary. The theatre is a premier gathering spot for cultural events along Route 66. First opened in 1909, the theatre served as an opera house that hosted concerts, dance performances and movies. In 1984, the Wildey closed as a full-time movie theater and was named a "local landmark" a few years later. Since then, the city has renovated the theater back to its original glory and it is now a premium venue for guests to experience the best live performances and some of the most popular classic films.

Groups can schedule a guided tour of the theatre and learn how they made their legendary popcorn. Contact the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau for help with scheduling your group tour.
