The above 1430 K Avenue address is correct. According to the Sanborn Maps, the street names were changed after 1961.

Main Street became K Avenue and Mechanic Street became 15th Street.

OCRon commented about Webbo Theatre on Mar 21, 2015 at 9:06 pm

The Sanborn Maps of 1950 place the Webbo Theatre at 319 N. Roane (Now Chase Drugs). On Google, compare those International Style windows to the CT photograph). The 1925 maps show the same building there but occupied by a store.

There is also an unknown theatre (Prince?) on the 1950 maps at 519 Roane, between Queen and Crescent. (The maroon-colored building next to white picket fence.)

Will Dunklin:

Was that called the Auditorium? Were there any other names? I saw it on the Pre-1932 maps at 158 W. Depot. 1932 and later maps show it at 148 ½ W. Depot, closed and used for storage.
