They did have old out of work B-Grade western cowboys on stage from time to time could not have paid them much back in the late 1950,s…sorry to see the old stars go down that road.

I’ve only been able to find two mentions of the American in Boxoffice Magazine. An October 14, 1939, ad for Altec featured a letter from Abe Solomon, operator of the American, praising Altec’s sound system. Then an October 18, 1949, item said that the new management of the American planned to renovate the house to present stage shows. The item said that the house had been showing westerns. I don’t know if the planned conversion to live theater was ever carried out.
