The Wilma Theatre

Readers' Pick

We really appreciate that the Wilma isn’t a cineplex teeming with teenagers on first dates. We also find the theater’s history and ambiance enchanting. In 1921, William “Billy” Simons, an entrepreneur who produced Wild West shows and built theaters across the Northwest, built the Wilma. He named the community gathering place after his wife, Edna Wilma, who was an opera singer on the West Coast vaudeville circuit. Today, locals can enjoy a microbrew (yes, the Wilma serves beer, another reason the theater is our favorite) while taking in quirky independent films and documentaries that you won’t see in any other local theater. The Wilma: 131 South Higgins Ave., 728-2521,
