The Google photos don’t look right they are not showing St Aubin … anyway, the Esquire eventually became the Cinema Theatre, always was a single screen, and it ran well into the 1980’s – don’t know when it closed. Also not mentioned on the Sioux City theatres page is the Cameo Theatre which was downtown on 409 Nebraska, a twin with narrow auditoriums and it was in business from around the late 60s to the late 80s.
