This threare suffered damage when a boiler underneath exploded. It happened during a mitinee for kids. My brother Pete and I awere there when the explosion occurred. It was so loud and the floor raised. We were terrified as this was our first matinee ever. I believe it happened about 1948 or 1949. We were about pre-teen at the time.
There was another Elks Theater on Brady Street in Du Bois.
