The Auditorium Theatre operated as a movie house from 1931 to 1954, according to this web page about entertainment in Freeland. There is a photo, the caption of which says that, after closing as a theater, the building was converted into a recreation center. Google has no street view for the location, but a Bing Maps bird’s eye view shows that the building is no longer there. It appears to have been replaced by a modern structure.

Listed in Film Daily Yearbook, 1941 edition as the St. Mary Auditorium Theatre (no seating capacity given). Same in the 1943 edition of F.D.Y. but with a seating capacity of 288. Not listed in the 1950 edition of F.D.Y.

I read on a Gen website that this theater started out as an auditorium for a Catholic school. I guess thats where the name comes from. The website didn’t explain what happened to the building after the theater closed.
