It was beautifully built in 1914 by the Homestake Gold Mine, and boasted a swimming pool, library, 1,000-seat theater, billiard hall, bowling alley, social hall, game rooms and smoking lounge. The building survived a devastating theater fire in 1984. This large, partially-restored historic performing arts venue on Lead's Main Street hosts theatre, concerts, community events, and educational presentations year-round. Along with several performing arts shows throughout the year, the community theatre group called the Gold Camp Players consists of several talented performing arts volunteers from the Northern Hills, dedicated to the music, dancing, theatre, and stage productions within the Historic Homestake Opera House.
Business office hours are 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Monday-Friday. The theater is open during events, and tours are available by appointment.
