Bringing Dumas the best in entertainment for 70 years
Randy Nies began working at the Evelyn at the young age of 12. He worked under Marge and Mutt McMurray. The Theatre was owned by the Powell's.
At the time, the Theatre projectors were carbon arc which required reel changes every 15-20 minutes. Randy witnessed the beginning of a new era in the early '80's when carbon arcs were replaced with xenon bulbs.
The theatre went digital on Friday, August 1, 2014, with brand new Dolby sound systems.
Currently the theatre is closed for renovations.
