Here is a fresh link to the photo RoadsideArchitecture linked to.

The July 4, 1914, issue of The Moving Picture World said “W. V. Schmidt will be manager of the new Grand moving picture theater which is nearing completion at Breese. The house will seat 450 persons.”

This theatre has begun showing films again. Last week (11/26/2010) they showed Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and the theatre was roughly 2/3 full according to the local paper.

The Drive-In Theatre near the intersection of Rt50 and St. Rose road was replaced by the large Breese Journal Building.
