The Dixie Theatre launched in 1928. The theatre converted to sound in 1930 and was taken over by the Schine Circuit in 1932. Schine dropped the theatre in 1949 which reopened in 1950 under a subleasing agreement with independent operation. The Dixie completed its run in 1956 showing Spanish language films. It was auctioned off with eight other Schine Theatres in 1958. Its pipe organ and all other items were sold shortly thereafter when the theatre was converted to an apartment complex in 1959.
