Located on the corner of 5th Street East and Walnut Street. Originally opened in November 1892 as the Fountain Square Theatre, it was designed by an architect Mr. McLaughlin. It closed in 1899. It was redesigned by architect James M. Wood and reopened as the Columbia Theatre which operated until 1909. It was taken over by B.F. Keith and he employed the recently formed (1907) architectural firm Rapp & Rapp to design or maybe redesign the theatre. It was the firms third theatre project and opened in 1910 as the B.F. Keith Theatre and it operated until 1921.
In 1921 Rapp & Rapp were again asked to design a new theatre and office building on the site which opened in 1921 as Keith’s Theatre.
Keith’s Theatre was closed in 1964 and the building was demolished to make Fountain Square.
