The original Arabesque facade of the building remains. It is now a church.

Had a Kimball organ installed in 1925.

I went to Saturday matinees at this theater in the 1940s. We would see two features, a comedy, a serial, and a newsreel for $.09 (because if they had charged $.10 they would have had to charge a tax). Popcorn, candy, and the bus were each $.05. We each got $.25 and would have to decide whether to have candy and popcorn or take the bus. Many times it was a long walk home in the rain.
