The Pearis Theater opened its doors on December 20th, 1939, and was constructed by the Star Amusement Company in cooperation with the local Witten family.  The theater is an “L” shaped structure, with a one-lot lobby and an auditorium that extends three lots.  The adjoining building, known as the Wittten building, was constructed at the same time, which accommodated retail activity on the first floor and housed professional offices on the second floor.  A fire in the 1950’s gutted the Witten Building, which, once rehabilitated, lost its historic integrity.  The Pearis Theater, however, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places for being a rare example of Art Deco architecture in Southwestern Virginia and for the local recreational and cultural significance of the building.  The name “Pearis” was named after Capt. George Pearis who served with Montgomery County, Virginia Militia during the American Revolution and was the town’s namesake.

The Future of the Theater:

Possibilities are endless!  Return the Theater to it’s Glory, Convert to Housing, New Restaurant or Retail Space….it is an open canvas!  Pearisburg, Virginia is a small town offering a historic downtown with quaint shops and restaurants, murals painted by a local artist and Inns.  It is only 40 minutes from Roanoke, Virginia and 20 minutes from Blacksburg and Virginia Tech.
