Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Vintage 1939 photos show that the Rocket Theatre (originally called the Criterion Theatre) was a medium size movie house that probably dated back to the early 1920’s, or maybe even as far back as the teens.

At this time not much else is known about this cinema. If you have further detail please inform us.

206 Rock Island is now a parking lot. Listing should be changed to demolished.
