Boomer Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This small, single aisle cinema opened as the Campus Theatre. Vintage photos indicate this movie house was installed inside existing retail space. By 1942 the interior had been redecorated and the name had changed to Boomer Theatre. Some sources claim this movie house and the current Boomer Building were one and the same, study of period photographs clearly prove this not to be so.
Please share any information you may have on this subject.

Nice 1942 exterior/interior photos can be seen on this link. Type word “campus” and/or “boomer”, then go search.

Research reveals that this (original) Boomer Theatre sat at 764 Asp., directly across the street from the second Boomer Theatre.
