There is also a clothing store at this address. The dance studio is 217 ½ N. Parkerson, which may be upstairs or a different part of the building. Retail should be added as a function.

An article about Crowley’s theaters in the June 16, 2013, issue of The Crowley Post-Signal (PDF here) says that the Acadia Theatre was in operation from 1919 to 1955.

A couple of issues of The Film Daily in 1936 said that the Southern Amusement Co. had reopened the Acadia after remodeling it, but both items got the theater’s name wrong, one calling it the Arcade and the other the Arcadia.
