Wadsworth Theatre

The Wadsworth Theatre was originally referred to as the Facility or Veterans' Theater. The architect is unknown, although a number of buildings were built in this style on the Veterans Administration grounds before World War II. The Wadsworth held nearly 2,000 patrons and was used for seasonal pageants, theatre productions, and movies for the VA residents. The theatre underwent extensive renovation between 1999 and 2002. It has since been used for theatre, concerts, symposia, movies, awards ceremonies, and other events.
