Opened as the Lone Star Theater, by 1941 it had been renamed Columbia Theater. It was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Hoblitzelle & O'Donnell.

The Columbia Theater was still operating in 1950.

Three March 2008 images of the Lone Star here, here and here.

Since photographing the Lone Star it appears to me that the “Lone Star” lettering was the first thing to be put on the building, plastered over and then having had a building next door with a wall covering that up. With that building now demolished and the plaster peeled away it occurs to me that the original name is now once again visible. It is a durable old building but the trees showing in the photos are growing in the auditorium.
