The Constantine Theater, a theater restored in 1987 some 100 years after it was built, is open for community events and by appointment. The theater was originally built as a hotel, The Hotel Pawhuska, but underwent a transformation after C.C. Constantine purchased it in 1911 and embarked on a dream to turn it into the finest opera house in the southwest. This beautiful theater has remarkable acoustics.
Pawhuska's Constantine Theater features a live stage fashioned after Greek Revival Style and offers a seating capacity of 589. The theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the National League of Historic Theatres. Productions performed at the Constantine Theater include plays, classic films, Branson-style music shows and musicals.
The Constantine Theater is also rumored to be haunted. The Constantine Ghost is featured in a paperback book by Ellen Robson and Dianne Halicki by the name of "Haunted Highway, The Spirits of Route 66," which features 66 spine-tingling tales of ghostly encounters along or close to America's most famous highway. Be sure to keep an eye out towards the balcony, where a female apparition dressed in a button-down gown has been spotted on occasion.
