In 1970 the Louvee was part of Chakeres Theaters of Springfield, OH. President Phil Chakeres ran numerous theaters in Ohio and Kentucky at the time.

The March 4, 1939, issue of Motion Picture Herald had this item about Wellston:

“Chakeres Theatres, Inc., of Springfield, Ohio, have taken over the 1,000-seat Virginian, and the recently completed Louvee, which has a capacity of 600, in Wellston, Ohio, from the Guilfoyle Amusement Company.”
I came across a trade journal item about a 1,000-seat theater being built at Wellston in 1904, but I’ve lost track of it. That project might have been the Virginian.
