Cass Theater...Plattsmouth Nebraska

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located on Main Street at Sixth Street in downtown Plattsmouth, the 450-seat Cass Theatre was opened as the Parmele Theatre in 1927. It was later renamed Cass Theatre. It was destroyed in the same 1961 blaze in which the adjacent Riley Hotel was lost. A bank is on the site today.

Any additional information on the Cass would be appreciated.

According to David Junchen’s book The Wurlitzer Pipe Organ, an Illustrated History p. 675, Wurlitzer shipped their organ opus 1684 – 2 manuals 4 ranks – to the Parmele Theatre in Plattsmouth, Nebraska in July 1927. Junchen notes that the theatre subsequently was renamed the Cass Theatre. Wurlitzer removed the organ in 1932 and sold it to a hospital in Cincinnati Ohio. It is easy to imagine that the Parmele became the Cass at about that time.
