Built by W. R. Frank in 1939, the West Theatre tried to ban smoking in the 1940s, but it was a losing battle.

The highlight of its marquee was a revolving tower which dominated the West St. Paul district landscape for many years.

Does anyone know if this theater started as the West Theatre and became the West Twins? And when the change occurred – if it did? And if this theater was called West Twins – logically it became a twin – did it and when? And if not why was it called “Twins”?

“That is just the top have of the theater. Back when I was a kid the marquee did not revolve, but it was called the West Twins Theater. Not that it had two screens, it didn’t. The owners were twins.” – Mark Clancy, former W. St. Paul resident
