Does anyone know anything about this theatre? Interior? etc.? I can’t find a thing with research. The building is still there but appears abandoned.

The building was most recently owned by a church. They only did minimal maintenance, as the roof collapsed while being examined by the city building inspector. The building was condemned in August 2009.

I went to this theatre almost every Sat. when I was a young boy, I think it cost a dime to get in you could watch a flash gordon serial, a movie and 2 cartoons for that price
