In August 18, 1938, the Comerford Movie Theater opened its doors to the public, showing the movie, Alexander's Ragtime Band, starring, Tyrone Power, Don Ameche, and Alice Faye. That was the beginning of a rich and colorful history for the building that is now called the F. M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts.
Since opening its doors 20 years ago, the F. M. Kirby Center's cumulative audience has been more than 2.5 million people. These audiences have witnessed a broad spectrum of attractions, ranging from grand opera to a cattle auction, from Broadway musicals to 18th Century dramas, from musicians to comedians (simultaneously when Victor Borge performed here), from ballet to acrobats, from magicians to ice skaters, plus the Young People's Theater which annually attracts as many as 10,000 pre-kindergarten though grade 12 students.
Beyond entertainment, the Kirby Center has hosted countless meetings, major political figures, religious ceremonies, graduations and numerous parties and weddings.
It is through the committed support of the community that this magnificent building still exists and is able to continue its legacy as the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts to present the best of the performing arts and entertainment in northeast Pennsylvania.
