The Royal Theater opened around 1911 at 503 Main Street. This theater was an “open air” theater or Airdome. Movies were shown here during the summer months. In cooler
weather, movies were then shown at the Opera House located at 301 Main Street. Moving pictures were shown as early as 1909 at the Opera House. One source gives a
closing date of 1923 for this theater and another gives 1927. Click the link below for a 1915 photo of the Royal Theater. The movie playing there is “The Spoilers”.

The Google Maps view should be displayed at the listing for the Seneca Theatre. The current Google view at the Seneca Theatre listing is obviously incorrect, and appears to be miles away in the countryside…I suppose it’s possible that the Royal was close to the Seneca, but the building numbers are too far apart (provided that they’re correct).
