Wellmont Theatre was initially built almost a century back in 1922, when it was looked at as the new legitimate theatre only to soon to transformed into a motion picture theatre by 1929. Its main and original entrance of the main avenue was made on Bloomfield Avenue. In 1951, the theatre was recorded to have a seating capacity of more than two thousand and one hundred. To make things better, its capacity had gone up three times by the seventies, while its mina entrance was moved all the way over the corner of the lobby’s previous emergency exit. This original lobby was then converted into a diner that has served many passersby, travelers, tourists and theatre-goers. The buildings largest auditorium is of course the Balcony Theatre. In addition, the facility has two smaller auditoriums with small screens that were created in the seating area of the former orchestra space.
Wellmont Theatre had to be closed down in 2006. It was reopened in a matter of two years after reportedly being purchased by another party and rumors came about that the new owners were planning on a different setting that would allow concerts along with other events. As part of the renovation plan, in 2008, the facility once again became a single screen after its two other screen were removed. The theatre was opened to general public in November 2008 after the completion of a three million dollar renovation plan, as a purely concert-based venue. The structure was retrofitted with entirely new plumbing and electrical systems while new bars had to be installed in the mezzanine and orchestra. The place has since been home to sold-out concerts by internationally renowned rock act like Matchbox Twenty, Phish, Bad Religion, The Dunwells, Gojra, Ocean Carolina, Trey Anastasio, Dwight Yoakam, and many more.
