The Ionia Theatre opened around 1931. It was operated by the W.S. Butterfield chain and was closed in the late-1970’s.

Rescued and restored in 1984, the Ionia Theatre is now owned by the city of Ionia, and is now a twin screen theater. In addition to showing first run movies, there are monthly bluegrass festivals and live musical concerts.

That link is a good find. The style can be changed to Art Nouveau.
