Eureka Opera House is an auditorium and convention center in Eureka, Nevada. Built in 1880,[1] and since then has remained an important center of town activities.[2] When motion pictures were first shown there beginning in 1915,[3] the building was renamed the Eureka Theater. It was later closed as a movie house in 1958.[4]

The structure was fully restored in 1993. The opera house is the centerpiece of the historic downtown district in Eureka.
