Moon Theatre, Omaha NB in 1920

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Cooper 70 Theater was located on the east half of the same block where the Rialto Theater sat, at 15th/14th and Douglas Streets.The Cooper 70 Theater was originally called the Moon. Although as the Cooper it was a movie house, during most of its history (as the Moon) this theater was Omaha’s bastion of bump (burlesque).

It was radically remodelled in the late 1950s. In its incarnation as the Cooper its architecture was similar to the Indian Hills (now demolished) out on West Dodge Road. The Moon/Cooper was demolished in 1974.

lost memory, yes this was the same theater, although when the Indian Hills was built the Cinerama projectors were moved from the Cooper to there.
