I have been looking through issues of the Kittanning Simpson Leader-Times on www.newspaperachive.com and the last ad I have been able to find for the Columbia Theater is for the week of March 24, 1965, when the theater was showing a double bill of “Baby, the Rain Must Fall” and “Send Me No Flowers.”

There was a Columbia Theatre operating in Kittanning at least as early as 1931, when it was mentioned in the April 21 issue of Exhibitors Forum.

The last mention of the Columbia I’ve found in Boxoffice is from the issue of October 12, 1964, which said that the house had reopened after a summer shutdown. It would operate Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, running double features. The owner/operator was Joe Brody. This item said the Columbia had 500 seats.
