Collins Theatre

The 1925 Capitol Theatre originally hosted vaudeville and other live stage entertainment in addition to movies. The Art Deco building was later renamed the Collins Theatre. The theater was restored and renovated by the Greene County Fine Arts Council starting in 1991 and is home to the Eastern Arkansas Ballet, live theater, musical theater, concerts, and various other events. The theater hosted the 1941 world premiere of "The Man Who Came to Dinner" starring Belle Davis and Paragould's own Bill Justice, known as Richard Travis in Hollywood. The Collins is now used by the community for a wide range of cultural and general entertainment events --beauty pageants, fashion shows, dramatic performances, summer musicals and revues, children's theater events, gospel music, and country and western shows.
