Chuck….Thats very possible. I checked on Cinematour and they have an aka name of Frederick 2. The next question is, what happened to Frederick 1? LOL

The 1963 motion picture almanac lists an Atlantic Theater in Atlantic, IA. This would presumably be a predecessor to the Atlantic 1&2 if the latter theater opened in 1990.

I added the earlier Atlantic, as yesterday I found a 1920’s article about a fire in the theater.

I’d rather be surprised when the new theater appears.

From the March 4, 1950, issue of Boxoffice: “R.W. Steen, whose Atlantic Theatre in Atlantic, Iowa, burned recently, is to rebuild. O.C.Johnson, manager of the wrecked showhouse, and of the Strand of Atlantic, made the announcement.”

I can’t find any other references to a Strand Theatre in Atlantic, but there are quite a few references to a Grand Theater, so I think “Strand” might have been an error in this particular article. Both houses were operated by Pioneer Theatres.

We need an aka name of Frederick 2. Here is a 1984 photo.

Maybe not Frederick 2. This theater is listed in the 1990 IMPA as the Frederick I & II.
