Opened as the Royal Theatre in 1930. It was twinned in the early-1970’s and a third screen added in the early-2000’s. It was originally operated by March Brothers Theatres and later March Theatres. J & J took over operations in 2005. It was closed in 2009, and was renovated and reopened in early-2012. There is a Hollywood Video store in the lobby of the theatre.

According Sanborn Fire Insurance maps, the Royal Theater dates to at least 1923.

Le Mars doesn’t seem too far from the Iowa town of Remsen, which I believe had one cinema, the Vogue, pictured here in 1938. Research in Film Daily Year Books suggests that the Vogue was originally called the Grand and re-named the trendier Vogue when modernized: Boxoffice
