The Bates Opera House
Imagine looking up from your seat today and being a guest to a live show. From the mid 1800's through the 1930's on these very grounds once stood the Bates Opera House. Originally a four story, 800 seat theater the Bates housed live performances including plays, musicals, comedy shows and five piece orchestras. On May 17, 1920 an adult ticket to a production of “Les Miserables” cost twenty-five cents and was hosted right here in the Weymouth Landing.
The Bates Opera House was not only used for shows and productions. Official town meetings were held there, and it was also the local spot for modern and contemporary movie reels. From a live showing of "Cleopatra" or "Huckleberry Finn" to dancing on Tuesday and Thursday nights, the Bates Opera House was the main attraction for people living and visiting the area.
It is rumored that sometime in the 1930's the Bates caught on fire and as a result the upper levels of the Opera House had to be demolished, leaving only the ground level. Throughout the years the building hosted many different businesses until our beloved Landing Pub opened on this site.
Our story here in the Landing started in 1996 when our family opened Ultimate Pizza next door to the Pub. We have had the great pleasure of joining this community and cooking for our friends and neighbors until, like the Opera House before us, we suffered a fire. On March 24, 2015 our home here in the Landing burned, forcing us to tear down and begin rebuilding.
Today we take pride in bringing you Bates Bar and Grill! Please sit back, eat, drink and perhaps enjoy the show!
