First learned of this theatre while reading about a theatre in Etowah TN….the Gem. The article about the Isis was in the Knoxville Sentinel. Love the art deco interior!

This is an old building and it needs help, but I’m working on it! I’ve visited the Egyptian Theatre in Dekalb IL and Perry’s Egyptian Theatre in Odgen Utah for inspiration.

First building in the region (several states) to have Air Conditioning. It was also built for sound movies before they were being produced. (Jazz Singer, 1927). Contractor who prompted the owner of another movie theatre in Crete to build a grand movie palace, worked in Hollywood building sets in the 1920’s, but when his wife became pregnant, they moved back to Nebraska where he put his knowledge of the movie business to use.
