The Elk’s Lodge membership outgrew its location on Broadway & 2nd Street in 1907, and the embellished auditorium on the second floor of the building was opened as the Odeon Theatre, presenting photoplays. A March 28, 1907 newspaper advertisement promoted the Odeon screening an obvious ‘exploitation’ picture “The Evelyn Nesbit Thaw Movie”. It was still named Odeon Theatre in December 1908, but was soon renamed Theatorium. By 1914 it had been renamed Star Theatre. By 1937 it had been renamed Gem Theatre.
The structure known as the Wright Building, with a modern facade that sheathed the original edifice was demolished in 2014.
