The Lee Theatre was located near the intersection of West Jefferson Street and North Raynor Avenue. It opened in 1946. I saw movies there in the late-1950’s and early-1960’s. The theatre burned down in 1963, and was never rebuilt.

One movie sticks out in my mind that I saw at the Lee. A Summer Place.

The building in the picture was built as part of the Mister Donut chain. Now it is Joliet Home Cut Donuts.

The Lee Theatre was located to the west of the Mister Donut (toward the top of the picture). After it burned down, it was demolished and was located where the empty space/parking lot is now located.
