The Vita Temple Theatre opened to much fanfare in 1929. The large house sat 2,100. Fashioned as a huge temple. When Vitaphone was introduced they had huge letters on the front of the marquee announcing Vitaphone.

The Vita Temple Theatre had a short life as a horrendous fire destroyed the theatre in 1933. The temperatures were sub zero turning any water used to fight the fire into ice. The Vita was totally destroyed.

The theatre building was a former church converted to a movie palace. The exterior was gothic revival style, and I would assume the interior was as well. Sad that it operated for only four years before the fire.
