The Central Theater was built in Ely, Nevada in 1939. The Art Deco style cinema was built by Percy and Warren Hull after they were denied permission to expand the 1913 Capital Theater. The Central is unusual in a town where most of the structures were built in the boom times of the early 20th century. The one story building features a vertical CENTRAL neon sign over the marquee. Interiors feature curved surfaces and is in a good state of preservation.[2]

The Central Theater was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
