The Wells Theatre opened in 1948. It was open at least into the early-1970’s

According to streetview, this is now gone. Not sure why they bothered. Would probably have survived another 30 years in that climate.

Actually, it was gone quite a while ago. It’s missing from the 2012 streetview. The sign in the empty lot claims its the future home of another theater, which looks like a sheet metal box in the drawing, but the satellite view shows the lot still empty.
