The theatre has been demolished.
In May 2012, the theatre appeared to be in use as a church — my photo
2012 — soon to show movies again:
The theatre was built in 1941. See this link.
The mural is still missing in 2012.
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.
I don’t know if this helps — but this is the Ben Franklin store that’s at the address above.
The address should be 608 Big Horn Ave. A 2008 photo
In 2011, the building was housing the Good Times Bar.
This one should be tagged as demolished.
The new marquee is up.
A replica of the original blade sign has been installed – link
Now the Prime Event Center.
And the neon sign has been destroyed:
This postcard image (1920s?) shows a different marquee.
The neon sign was restored in 2011. A photo of it here.
The relighting of the marquee in December 2011.
According to this website, the theatre opened in 1931:
Nothing doing — July 2011:
My photo from July 2011 shows the building still vacant:
Open — my photo from April 2011
Was most recently “Uno Mas Nightclub” — and now vacant. Photo from April 2011.
I believe the status should be changed to “Closed”. This photo is from April 2011.
This drive-in is still open. Their website says they opened in 1949.
