The Carlisle Theatre, originally called The Comerford, opened its doors in May of 1939. During its early years, the Theatre offered daily continuous shows from 2:30 until 11:30 P.M. The matinee price for adults was 25 cents and the evening price 40 cents. With the advent of cineplexes, the Theatre entered a state of decline in the 1970's, eventually closing in 1986. In 1993 a huge revival effort resurrected the theater as the Carlisle Regional Performing Arts Center and features live stage performances, indie movies, concerts and other performing arts.
