The Historic Fayette Theater is a former movie house that was built in 1937. It is one of the few Depression era theaters still operational in southern WV. Visitors can view the original movie projectors, which remained in use until the 1960s. The Fayette County Historical Society began renovations in 1992. Adorning the walls inside the theatre are many paintings and pieces of art that depict life and entertainment from the 1930s era. The theatre stages ten performances per year, along with special nights by request. The building is open for free tours on Fridays from late May until late October. (Listed NRHP 1990)
