Smith’s Opera House, also known as the Geneva Theater, is a historic theater building located at Geneva in Ontario County, New York. It was constructed in 1894 and is a three and a half story, detached brick and stone building. It was built by one of Geneva’s most respected citizens, William Smith. It was renovated in 1931 as a movie theater by architect Victor Rigaumount in a unique combination of Art Deco and Baroque motifs. The Geneva Theatre was renamed Smith Opera House in 1983.
