The Jefferson Theatre was designed by noted architect Emile Weil and built in 1927 in Downtown Beaumont. The theater has hosted some of the world’s greatest motion pictures, including “It’s A Wonderful Life,” whose 1947 premier was held at the Jefferson Theatre, with star James Stewart and director Frank Capra in attendance.
Owned and operated by the City of Beaumont, the theatre has become the cornerstone of entertainment in Downtown. Weekly Classic Movie Nights began in August 2014 and are wildly successful with more than 12,000 attendees annually. Major concerts and shows in the last year include Pat Benatar, Bobby Bones, Russian Grand Ballet, Travis Tritt, Rodney Carrington, and Tracy Byrd.
