A theater that must’ve been built in the 1920’s that featured many vaudeville acts and movies. I remember my older brother taking me to see a vaudeville show and a re-release of “The Invisible Man” sometime before 1949. Around that time the theater began showing only movies—second run.

The theatre closed in March of 1950 and was eventually razed for—guess what—a parking lot.
