The category should be “demolished” not closed. The theatre was destroyed in the 1993 fire and there’s a parking lot there now. The neon Chief sign was saved and has been restored. It will soon be displayed on the former site of the theatre. See this article

Here’s a photo from August 2011.

The same building design (operated by Baehr Theatres) as the Park Theatre in Park Rapids, MN — so probably built the same year or thereabouts (1939).

The theatre’s website touts “since 1919”. There is a vintage photo there that might date from 1937.

However, the exterior and sign now, if it’s even the same building, look more 1950s.
