Historic Sterling Theater
Originally built in 1924 for vaudeville and stage acts, the theater was partially destroyed by fire on July 9, 1943.
It was rebuilt in an Art Moderne style designed by architect John R. McLane and opened on September 28, 1944. One of the features of the rebuilt Sterling Theater was a lighted tower, which became a beacon for entertainment in downtown Sterling.
Renovated & Refreshed
In a collaborative civic effort, the Theater was acquired and renovated by the Greater Sterling Development Corporation in 2013. Under an independent theater management group, the tower of Sterling Theater is lit once again.

We had our sons’ 13th birthday party here and we’re completely happy with the way it turned out. Everyone enjoyed the movie with plenty of room and the party went off great.
