the building still stands. At one time it was a clothing store,now I think an antique shop or something. My uncle who is 86 says he used to go there to watch the b-westerns. It wasn’t exactly the fanciest theater in town.

Had no idea that this had been a theater. It must have been quite small.

I have just added a pic from today, Feb 3, 2020. The location is restored, although I am not sure how historically “correct.” It is a “hemp” store now. Various buildings on the street are undergoing “restoration,” although facades are not necessarily original.
