Burglary in March 1957:

The sheriff’s department is investigating the theft of $400 from the Century Theater in Coopersville some time after 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. Discovery was made Thursday morning that the money had been taken out of a locked cabinet in the office of the theater which is owned by Alfred Hefferan of Eastmanville. There was no forceful entry, it is reported.

In 1937, Alfred Heffernan started his first theatre after the Owl Theatre in Grand Rapids located in his parent’s house lasting seven years. Graduating from Junior College, Heffernan started the Lynx Theatre in Coopersville, a 150 seater, in 1937 (see photos). It was a success and Heffernan decided to build a larger, 348-seat facility.

The Century Theatre was architected by the firm, Robinson, Campau and Crowe of Grand Rapids and built for $20,000 opening in the Fall of 1940.
