A local couple are planning to renovate and reopen the historic Kamas Theater

(Krystal Gutierrez Nielsen | Kamas Valley Information Center) Social media users were thrilled when a resident of the town of Kamas posted this on Facebook on July 17.

The rumors are true: the old Kamas Theater wants to reopen after almost a decade.

Heberites Blanca Partida and Reed Bearbower are the latest in a long line of family owners and operators of the Kamas Theater.

The theater has been closed since 2014 and now it says “Opening soon” on the marquee. Partida and Bearbower signed a lease with the current owner, John Crandall of the Crandall Funeral Home, in early June.

Bearbower originally intended to use it as a workshop for his craft business, but the couple decided to restore it instead.

“And here we’re doing some upgrades and things like that to the theater to make it a real movie theater and other entertainment venues again,” Bearbower said.
