I could not find when the Thomas Theatre opened, but it was a single screen theatre located on North Main Street and Broadway. The theatre closed in 2004 and has since been demolished.

The 350 seat Temple Theatre is listed in the Film Daily Yearbook; 1950 edition at 111 North Main Street. It is also in the 1943 edition but not in 1941. The State Theatre is listed in 1941 and 1943 as having 250 seats. but had dropped from listings by 1950. No address is given for the State Theatre.

From Boxoffice magazine, May 1950. Perhaps Thomas should be removed as the aka.
