Brown brick building was built and opened in 1920, and it large orchestra with small loge seating area. A large back stage area behind the movie screen, with ceiling grid and fly ropes & pullys, a remnant of live theater & vaudeville days. A large basement beneath the stage with dressing rooms and make-up room.
The theatre was located on the north side of W. Lincoln Avenue, near the north-east corner of Lemon Street.
I was an usher there while in High School and college in the 1960’s. One time the pop/soul group The Platters performed there live. Another time the Reverend Billy Graham had a lecture there.
It was demolished in the 1970’s to make room for the downtown shopping center. I saved one wooden pin from the rope/pin rail, and one brick from its demolition.
