This theater opened in 1911 and showed second run films until the building was destroyed by fire in 1927. The theater was rebuilt in the same location and continued operation under different ownership into the late 1940s. The last organization to run the theater was the Pioneer chain, which owned 19 theaters in the area around that era. The theater was razed in 1954.

On September 20, 1920, the Isis was showing “Food for Scandal” with Wanda Hawley and Harrison Ford (that’s what it says). Wanda received top billing, of course, which most likely left Harrison pretty ticked.

The IMDB says that Wanda Hawley later became a call girl in San Francisco. Sic transit gloria mundi.
