The Electric Theater was the first movie theater in Eldon, and first showed silent movies before converting to talkies. It was owned and operated by Oscar Dowell in the 1920’s, and later owned by Tom and Connie Edward into the 1930’s, closing in 1933. It was located on S. Maple Street, just north of the corner of E. 1st Street and S. Maple Street.
