The Gifts Theater was built by McMahon & Jackson, owners, opening November 23, 1917, and closed October 1945. It was erected upon the footprint of the Gifts firehouse which had been built with donations from the city’s citizens, hence the name of the firehouse. I suppose that when the Gifts movie theater was built the populace where familiar with the location so that explained the name carryover.
It was a silent movie house until sound came in then it switched to that format. In 1945 the Gifts Theater was demolished to make space for the final RKO Grand Theater located at 527 Vine Street. There were two entrances for the Gifts Theater, one on Vine Street, and one on Sixth Street.
