KIMMEL Theatre; Cairo, Illinois.

This 600-seat theatre shared a building located on 8th Street with the much smaller Bijou Theatre. Both theaters opened in 1911. The Kimmel Theatre closed in 1917, and moved to another location on 8th Street (later becoming the Jackson Theatre, and finally, Rogers Theatre). The Bijou Theatre survived until 1931. The structure that housed the first Kimmel Theatre and Bijou Theatre has since been razed.
