A Grand Theatre in Sparta, Illinois, is listed in the September 7, 1918, issue of The Moving Picture World.

Also, although our Sparta Theatre page says that that house occupied the former site of the Grand, we give its address as 142 Broadway while we give the Grand’s address as 141 Broadway. Were they really on the same site, or were they across the street from each other? If they were on the same site, which is the correct address?

The Sparta Theatre page says that that house opened in 1951 on the site of the Grand Theatre, which had burned down. The Grand was mentioned in the 1942 edition of the International Motion Picture Almanac.
