Opened in the Fall of 1936 and closure as a regular movie house was July 3, 1963 after a final showing of “The Adventures of the Brothers Grimm.” The Lee-Dix Theatre Circuit which operated the Dixon Theater said the theater – which had no functioning air conditioning system at that time – would reopen in the Fall when cooler weather came. Though that didn’t transpire, the Lee was used for special events and organ recitals into 1964. Osco Drugs announced a deal in summer of 1964 to take over the Lee Building and converted the former Lee to a retail pharmacy.
