This was part of the Marcus Theater circuit in the early sixties.

The Classic was no longer listed in the IMPA as of 1967, so it must have closed sometime in the previous four years, as it was listed in the 1963 edition.

I just found a news clipping that said that Marcus Theatre took it over in 1957. Their first show was Christmas Day. It was purchased from Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Porter and Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The theatre capacity was 400 seats.
