The Masonic Building was built in 1928. The Temple Theatre was opened on July 1, 1929 as a single screen 800-seat ‘talkie’ theatre. 1937 and 1965 photos reveal that the Temple Cinema had formerly been a (circa 1920) Masonic Temple. An attractive neon marquee letterboard was added over the main entrance when this building converted over to movie use. A quasi-modernist flair permeated the fancy auditorium, and in an earlier era a finely draped stage most certainly hosted vaudeville acts and stage productions.
