Under the heading “Apache & Peoria” the Peoria Cinema can be seen photo left. This snapshot is dated 1954, and it looks as if the Peoria had already shuttered, as the marquee letterboard is bare. Most Likely the Peoria died a slow death as did many theatres of that period; sporadically open off and on, then weekends only, till finally it shut down completely.
