The Ramon Theater was built in 1925 by Frank and Vera Thompson. It was a source for a variety of entertainment from vaudeville to movies. The Ramon Theater was designed by architect Leo Elliott, who was well known for his Mediterranean-style architecture.
The Frostproof Chamber of Commerce bought the building in 2002 and sought funding to restore the building. It took $1.3 million to fund the theater's long list of needed repairs, with the chamber receiving $750,000 in grants from the State of Florida's Department of State & Historical Resources, plus additional funding from the Polk County Board of County Commissioners, and donations from local and former Frostproof residents for the restoration.
