Something tells me that this was a theatre run by the Temple.

The Temple of what?

I meant Nauvoo Temple but now that you think about it, Temple of Doom may be acceptable.

Very interesting film. But, what I don’t understand is why is the theatre still intact and yet it’s listed as a restaurant. From the photo posted by Lost Memory it appears that the auditorium is to the left of the restaurant. Were there multiple auditoriums and the one now houses the restaurant? The posting says single screen. Bryan, could you clarify this please.

Valid point, but a long time in coming (December 2008). No real action on this listing. Would you have the answer to my September 2009 question that I posed to Bryan?

Thanks. Interesting. Bizarre. But at least the auditorium remains intact.

Trying to read the marquee. Can’t. Do they light the vertical?

Pretty sure that the last two lines on the marquee are ICE CREAM and SANDWICHES. The top one could be BREAKFAST but I’m not positive about that.

I was in Nauvoo earlier this week. The hostess of the eatery pried open the plywood coverings of one of the theater doors and showed me the interior. Indeed,the theater is INTACT and could be re-upped,so to speak. As tourists flock in increasing numbers,to this astonishing town,there just might be a market for this ancient venue to live again.
