The Royal Theater was opened prior to 1936. It was still open in 1957. It was a monogram shop a few years ago.

The address you have is wrong. I believe it is 125 5th Street and it’s where the local American Legion chapter meets. The theater went out of business before The Richland, the other movie theater in town. I’m very sure I saw BATMAN there, a 1966 film. Also I think THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN, also from 1966. I may have seen a double bill there, a reissue of THE BIRDS with a Hammer film, THE DEADLY BEES, the latter being a 1967 film.

The Royal Theatre was downtown on Courthouse Square. My dad’s family, the Mays, owned it. I can’t remember the year my aunt, Frances Thomas, sold it, but I thought it closed after the Richland. It was near the pool hall and the old barbershop. My mom and dad, Freddie and Margie, have passed. I do have pictures, especially during the 1937 flood, but not much more info. L
