Welcome To The Historic Dixon Theatre!

Ronald Reagan's Hometown Theatre

The Historic Dixon Theatre has an interesting past, an exciting present and a promising future.

In 1920, Leonard G. Rorer, then manager of Dixon's Family Theatre, announced he had purchased the site of the old Opera House in downtown Dixon for the purpose of erecting the finest show house to be found between Chicago and Des Moines and from Rockford to LaSalle. The Dixon Opera House had opened in 1876 and was the entertainment center of the area until it was destroyed by fire in early 1920.
