Fire, Smoke Damage to Lime Theatre, But Being
Readied for Week-End Shows

The Lime Theater is being cleaned, washed, and walls repainted following being smoked up quite badly Friday night. It is expected that it will be possible to reopen for this weekends’ regularly scheduled nights, Friday Saturday Sunday. The same show will be held over for showing this week that was booked for list weekend when the fire made it impossible to operate. The show will be “The Shaggy Dog” and “The Huffless Puffless Dragon”, the Walt Disney pictures which so many of the youngsters were anticipating seeing.

The fire started about 6:20 p.m. Friday when Mrs. LaVerne Kester, theater manager, turned on an electrical switch and she saw fire start in the ceiling near the projection booth. There was no one else in the theater. Mrs. Kester hurriedly called the Fire Department and it responded immediately.
