This theater opened in 1911, on lower Main Street. Modeled after the Royal Theatre in London, Ontario, it had a $15,000 organ. Entrance was on Main Street, the exit on Washington Street.
It was known at various times, as Keith’s Theater, Keith’s Columbia Theater, and Keith’s Italian Theater. With the first run theaters a short ways up Main Street, the Keith’s Theater always showed second and third run films.
General conditions deteriorated through the 1940’s and 1950’s, the end coming in 1960, when a fire swept the theater, also damaging the Little Hippodrome Theater next door.
A few years later, the burned out structure was razed for downtown redevelopment.
