The Paramount Theatre in Abilene, TX. Opened in 1930 and restored in 1986. Built in a Spanish/Moorish style that these pictures don't do justice...

Located at 6 North Laurel Street, to the west of downtown Richmond, Virginia, the Mosque was built in 1926 by the Shriners as their Acca Temple Shrine and contained the most elaborate and the largest theater ever built in Richmond with approximately 4,600 seats and the largest proscenium arch stage on the East Coast. It was designed in 1925 by Marcellus Wright, Sr. in association with Charles M. Robinson and Charles Custer Robinson. Though it opened in October of 1927 it was officially dedicated on January 9, 1928 and completed at a cost of $1.65 million.

Marvelous thread!
But what do you mean by historical? Well, the question is, how much time is required to be in this thread?
I'll contribute with some pictures of some mexican cites:
Note: The photos are not mine, credits to their owners.
Mexico City's Theater. "El Teatro de la Ciudad"

Degollado Theater in Guadalajara. "Teatro Degollado"

Juarez Theater in Guanajuato. "Teatro Juárez"

Republic Theater in Queretaro. "Teatro de la República". This is the most stark of the ones I've showed; nevertheless, is easily the most significant historically speaking: in this place Mexico's current constitution and Mexican Revolution greatest accomplishment was signed.

Shea's Theatre Buffalo NY

image hosted on flickr

http://www.flickr.com/photos/jerrygodwinfoto/

Shea's Buffalo, flagship of the theater chain, was designed by the noted firm of Rapp and Rapp of Chicago. Modeled in a combination of Spanish and French Baroque and Rococo styles, the theatre was designed to resemble opera houses and palaces of Europe of the 16th and 17th centuries. It opened as "Shea's Buffalo" in 1926. Many years and renovations later, it serves as the hub of Downtown Buffalo's theatre and arts scene.
