Probably just the one. Status should be open/live performances, I believe. Thanks for the information.

I would like to have my book signing here at this theater this month. Who do I speak with about this? My book “Alien Harvest” is being ordered at this moment and will be available to ship the 26th.

An article about Chakeres Theatres in the March 4, 1939, issue of Motion Picture Herald said that “…the Chakeres organization took over Bell’s Opera House, with 750 seats, at Hillsboro, where it also recently opened the new Colony”

Status should be closed. A group has a page on Facebook trying to raise funds for rehabilitation.
