It is now being converted into performing arts center. commented about Chief Theatre on Nov 6, 2013 at 2:22 pm

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 commented about Sunset Drive-In on Oct 19, 2013 at 7:45 am

The drive-in is located here — not far from Jewel City Blvd. commented about Ford Theatre on Jun 28, 2013 at 10:07 am

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). commented about Lake Theatre on Apr 4, 2012 at 7:54 pm

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. commented about Bemidji Theatre on Mar 29, 2012 at 7:56 pm

I don’t know if this helps — but this is the Ben Franklin store that’s at the address above. commented about Kerby Theatre on Mar 16, 2012 at 8:55 pm
