After it closed as a movie venue, it was briefly a flea market/bowling alley/min. golf course. It did not burn down, it was demolished. The auto repair shop (Shay’s) was next door to the theatre building.

It was never refurbished. These were only drawings, the work was never done.

Having lived just a block from the Theater I would say that the drawing are darn close, I watched many a film there, after it closed it was concerted to a auro repair shop, then it burned to the ground. There was never a miniature gulf course there.

After the theater closed, wasn’t it converted to an Arnold Palmer miniature golf course. I think this is right but am not 100% positive.

After some research, I’m not sure the Stonehurst Theatre ever looked like this, it may have been an advertising picture made up for the architectural design for Pittco Store Fronts. I just don’t remember there being a building to the left (as you look) of the theatre that large. Here is an excerpt from the News of Delaware County which shows a drawing of what I remember the theatre looked like in the 70’s.
