A brief history

The Levoy Theatre opened on January 9, 1908 by William “Pop” Somers. Somers was one of the early Ferris Wheel designers (even before Mr. Ferris himself). When the theatre first opened there was a theater on the lower level and a dance floor on the upper level. The 1st admission price was 5¢ for one ticket or 25¢ for six tickets.

By 1912, the  Levoy had doubled in size and became known as the “New Levoy”. After further expansions and embellishments in 1927 it was then called “Theatre Beautiful” of Millville. Most recently the Levoy Theatre facade and marquis was updated and there was another Grand Opening in 2012.
