This is from the Montana Standard, 10/13/39. We believe this to be the Highland:

While I was snooping around on the street view for the Bluebird I discovered what just had to be a small simple art deco theater. That was before reading this page. Ken’s post confirms what I discovered but I got the usages of the building backwards. They did one fine job on the remodel since it looks like it was purpose built on the spot—the recessed entryway, the double doors on either side of a presumed box office window, the nice curved corners, and the stepped parapet (probably original). This building is two doors down from the Pizza Hut toward Chestnut. Fuller Drug Company is still very clear on the building. So hopefully mystery solved.

Snagged a street view picture from Google Earth—I hope it is ok to have posted it. The aerial view of this building shows that it is incredibly long compared to its width and height.
