Viewing: Photo | Street View

This is a small town theatre I found while on a road trip of other theatres. Built in 1935, this theatre blends in nicely with the other Main Street buildings. It has a castle-like battlement along the roof line. There is a small marquee with the theatre name in neon and there is no vertical sign. The architects were Wetherell & Harrison who, I was told, had an office in Des Moines, Iowa.

This is a Fridley Theatre, not an independent:
