The American Theatre was opened August 2, 1920 with Wallace Reid in “Excuse My Dust” & “His last False Strep”. It was one of two movie theatres operating in the town in the 1930’s onwards until the late-1960’s, the other being the Uptown Theatre. The American Theatre would show a program on one day (a Monday, for example) and the Uptown Theatre would show the same program the next day (Tuesday, for example), adding a matinee. The American Theatre didn’t have matinees.
The American Theatre was badly damaged by a fire on March 5, 1939. It was rebuilt, reopening on September 2, 1939. It was closed December 20, 1957, and was used sparodically for live events. It was demolished in June 1963.
