The Beverly was constructed in just four months for a cost of $250,000 and opened on August 27, 1937. Originally operated by Mamie Kogan and Robert Silberstein, it closed in 1964 as part of the Wisper-Wetsman circuit.

In 1969, Jehovah's Witnesses purchased the building for use as an assembly hall. In the mid 1970s the building was renovated, as well as nearby stores purchased and added to the structure. Thew building was used by Jehovah's Witnesses until aprox 1988 when the building was sold to Great Faith Ministries which is who onws the building at the present.
