Here is a 1942 photo from Life Magazine:

You can access more photos if you narrow down the categories. For instance, “1940s main street” gets you a couple dozen photos that you wouldn’t get by searching for “main street” by itself.

From Boxoffice magazine, January 1946:

OSAWATOMIE, KAS.-R.V. Johnson, discharged recently from the army after five years in the service, has been appointed assistant manager of the Osawa Theater by the H.J. Griffith Circuit.

Neither of the old buildings still standing on this block could have been the Osawa Theatre. It was probably where the modern Landmark National Bank building is now located. The theater has undoubtedly been demolished.

In 1939 Dickinson Theatres embarked on a $250,000 project of remodeling and renovating many of the theaters in the circuit. An article about the program appeared in the August 19, 1939, issue of Boxoffice. All the projects were designed by the Dallas architectural firm of Corgan and Moore.

One of the houses that the article listed as part of the project was the Osawa. The theater had been renamed, but the article didn’t say what the previous name had been.
