The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse – Cocoa Village

Cocoa Village Indoor Playhouse

Broadway comes to life in the heart of Historic Cocoa Village. And what a story this theater house has. In August 1924, the Aladdin Theater opened its doors to the public and showed silent films. It evolved over time as Brevard County’s first ‘talkie’ cinema, known as the ‘Indian River Section Showcase’.

Eventually, the Aladdin Theater was purchased by City of Cocoa and renamed The Cocoa Village Playhouse. In 1991, Playhouse was accepted on the National Register of Historic Places. Known mostly for its Broadway on Brevard series, other programs include showing classic films from the Aladdin film series and short-term productions called the Spotlight series.
