This was the first movie theatre that I attended, seeing “Family Plot”.

This theatre was last known to show foreign language films for the migrant workers who would live in northwest Ohio during the summer months.

The picture I took of this theatre is how it currently looks.
It houses some apartments and I don’t know what it looks like on the inside. To see the pic. go here:

Genoa Theatre gutted by fire Friday
GENOA â€" The Genoa Theater, which operated in Genoa for about 15 years, was gutted by fire Friday afternoon in a general alarm fire.
The theater, located in the middle of the Genoa business district, was owned by Margaret Kenyon of Genoa. The fire was discovered at about 3 p. m. when smoke and flames were seen coming from the front of the brick building.
Genoa firemen controlled the fire before it could spread to
the new U. S. Post Office, which is connected to the theater on
the east side.
Just west, across a narrow alleyway, is the frame Genoa Hotel, which was also saved from fire damage.
James “Scotty” Raitt of Genoa leased the building and operated the theater. It was open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. The last movie house in Genoa also burned down sometime in the early 1940s, it was reported. Firemen speculated that faulty wiring may have caused
the blaze.
