One of two small theatres (the other being the Miami) on West Pearl Street. The Grand opened in 1892 as the Cadwallader, later the Union Grand, and finally the Grand. The theatre once hosted vaudeville, including such performers as varied as Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and W.C. Fields.

The Grand showed first run films until it closed circa 1968, at which time the theatre portion of the building was demolished. The storefront of the building continued to house businesses, while the upstairs dressing roooms were turned into apartments.

In 2002, an accidental fire in one of the upstairs apartments destroyed the building.
