The Beacon Theater

Beacon Theatre was designed by Fred Bishop, the same architect as the Byrd in Richmond. Built in 1928 by the Knights of Pytheas it began as a silent movie and Vaudeville show palace. Stars such as Sally Rand, (famous burlesque dancer); Lash LaRue, Cowboy performer who taught Harrison Ford how to crack a whip performed in the Beacon in the 1930’s-1940’s. In the 1950’s-1970’s, The Beacon was primarily a movie house. Many of the young and old alike of Hopewell met their sweethearts for date night.
