The Family Theatre opened on September 2, 1949. That day's issue of the Beaver Valley Times had a courtesy ad congratulating the theater on its opening that was placed by architect Harry L. Widom of Pittsburgh. He may have designed the Family Theatre.

There is now a curb cut in front of the theater and a pair of garage doors where the entrance used to be, but two poster cases remain and there is some decorative tile work on the floor, as well as a patch of bare concrete which must be where the box office stood.
