Walter B. Urling built the original LaBelle, and named the theatre after “Isabelle”, both his daughter’s and mother’s name. The LaBelle continued to function as a movie house, enduring a name change to Cinema South in the late 1960’s, but closed in the 1980’s. The building served as a church through the 1990’s. In 2003, the City of South Charleston purchased the building, and work continues to bring The LaBelle back to life again as a working theatre. Coming soon 2nd run movies… Once they are finished showing at large theaters the LaBelle Theater will show movies on Friday eve, Saturday day and eve. Refreshments will be available.
