Originally built in 1972 as a twin, the Polar was triplexed during the 80s. The Polar showed adult films. After it closed, the theater was converted (and enlarged) in 1994 into a grade school.

Saw the original Star Wars there in 1978 (I think it was second run, buck flicks, or something like that)
