The Smoot Theatre

213 Fifth Street
Parkersburg, WV 26101


At the turn of the century, Parkersburg was a boom town - a product of oil, gas and timber industries. This small river town supported seven live theatres! The Smoot, originally built as a vaudeville house, was purchased by Warner Brothers in 1930, and for the next 56 years, was used primarily for movies. During that time period, Warner redecorated the building, transforming it into an exquisite, posh theater.
