The Senator Theater opened October 5, 1939, with 1,024 seats, showing "Stanley and Livingston" starring Spencer Tracy. It was designed in the Art Deco style by theatre architect John J. Zink, whose other theatre designs include the Uptown Theatre in Washington DC. On one side of the projection booth was a soundproof party room and on the other side there was a soundproof nursery.

During its operation, the theater has been used to raise millions of dollars for local and national charitable organizations. It has also hosted world premieres and has been featured in numerous films and commercials, including "Avalon", "12 Monkeys", "Cecil B. Demented", and others.

The theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is also considered one of the most endangered theatres in the country
