Beacon Theater

401 N. Main Street, Hopewell, VA 23860

As one of Hopewell's most visible landmarks, the Beacon Theatre opened in 1928 and has captured the hearts of the community from one generation to the next for over 75 years. The 1950’s were a golden era for the theatre. Sadly, in 1981, the theater had its last curtain call. But in 1987, with the establishment of Hopewell Preservation, Inc., a grassroots campaign was initiated to restore, revive and reopen the historic Beacon Theatre.
