Warner Theater, also known as The High Street Theater, was a historic movie theater located in West Chester, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was designed by the noted Chicago theater design firm of Rapp and Rapp and built by Warner Brothers. It opened on November 14, 1930. It is a composite of one-, two-, and three-story buildings in the Art Deco style. It includes the theater, restaurant, and a series of seven small stores. The theater has a two-story foyer with a three-story tower that formerly supported the marquee. The auditorium measured 83 feet by 120 feet, and originally sat 1,650, 1,300 on the floor and 350 in the balcony. The auditorium was demolished in late 1986, and the remainder of the building has been renovated as the Hotel Warner.
