About the Paxton – In the November election of 1907 the residents of Paxton Township marked their ballots in support of erecting a new township hall on the corner of Main and Maple streets in Bainbridge. The new Paxton Township Hall featured a large theatre seating over 500. Early shows included live theatre, movies, minstrels, vaudevilles, magic shows and other entertainment.
During the 1940s, the decade that produced “Casablanca,” “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Maltese Falcon,” the Paxton projected the movies of the time to area residents.
The early ’60s brought the start of the Paint Valley Jamboree, currently operating in its 53nd continuous season. Today the Paxton Theatre offers a variety of live, family-friendly entertainment to audiences young and old.
