Built in 1926 and still boasting the Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ, many stars, from Babe Ruth to Tom Mix, have made their way to the stage. With a classic art design that was restored and renovated in 1999, the theatre now operates 364 days a year. Featuring the best of independent and art films, events include the weekend Midnight Movie Series, Classic Film Series, and Silent Movie Nights. The theatre also hosts plenty of live events, from guest speakers to concerts. With a grand total of 870 seats and a statue commemorating Fargo, the Academy Award winning film, there's plenty to see here!
Red River Zoo
Enough about art and museums! If you're more into nature, your first stop should be the zoo.
