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.

“Then there was the Lawana Theater. They didn’t last too long, maybe a couple of years. I don’t really remember. It was Flippers for a while, but now I think it is a church”. Source.

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

Thats exactly what the current function is and that is correct. The bar came before the church. Stop doing Google address searches. The information returned is outdated.

Believe it or not, I’m trying to help you. The first comment could have caused one of the theater editors to change the function to bar.

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