The theater was on the corner of E Street & 6th Street. As of 2012, the building still remains and has been a number of eating establishments over the years, a place for rummage sales, and as the linked photo above shows, a Greyhound station in the mid-1980’s.

Looking in the Google archives, one of the original owners of the theater was McClannahan Investments, a father and son-owned company. Archives show the existence of the Mor in the late 40’s. According to an article in the February 26, 1980 edition of the Tri-City Herald, the plan was to close the Mor that summer, which would make Umatilla residents have to see a movie in the nearby town of Hermiston, Oregon.
