The Mandan Theater opened in 1936.

After closing it has been in use as a pizzaria. It has been re-named Mysteria Theater in 2008, and was due to re-open late-2008 as a theatre-restaurant. In 2011, it was opened as a bar, known as the Little Chicago Club.

This 10/7/07 article presumably refers to the Mandan as the other theater on Main Street is still open:

I recently passed by the former Mandan Theatre(Now called the Mysteria Theatre) and it seems that the renovations are complete, they are just looking for employees. Will post pictures at a later date.

Boxoffice of December 2, 1974, said that the former Mandan Theatre had reopened as the Showboat Cinema in mid-November, following a $100,000 renovation. It was a single-screen house with 412 seats. The Mandan Theatre had originally been built by Frank Wetzstein.

Photos of the Showboat Theatre appeared in Boxoffice of June 30, 1975.

I’ve had no luck finding a confirmation of the address, but the June 6, 1977, issue of Boxoffice has a list of theater projects completed during 1976, and it includes the Showboat Cinema 2 at Mandan, with 144 seats. As the item doesn’t mention a Showboat Cinema 1, I suspect the new screen might have been in an addition or in space annexed from an adjacent building rather than carved from the existing auditorium.
