Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The 360-seat Lawana Theatre opened on October 30, 1941, located on Maine Street near Stillwater Avenue. It was named for a combination of the first names of its original owners, Walter and Ana Hull, who also owned the Fallon Theatre. All seating was located on a signle floor.

It is listed in the 1945 Film Daily Yearbook as closed, but reopened later, and operated until around 1954. After closing as a movie house, the Lawana Theatre was converted to retail use. For many years, it was home to a bar.

The former Lawana Theatre was acquired in late-2005 by a church. The church also purchased the former Armando’s restaurant next door to the theater building which they converted into a coffee house.

It looks like it’s a bar called Flippers, currently. Perhaps the church is gone.

According to this article, Threshingfloor Ministries is the current occupant, so church would be correct:

There is a photo of the building on the church website:

But we ended up with a nice picture of the theater, didn’t we? So all is not lost.
