The facade of the theatre was green and beige glass tile. The box office was located to the left of the entrance. The Gulf Theatre was a second run house and usually played double or triple features.
When orginally built as the Legion Theatre in 1941, the huge support pole in front of the entrance was covered with small squares of mirrors. The remaining pieces were eventually removed due problems with people peeling the small mirror sections off the support.
The theatre was jointly owned by the Ortte family and the local American Legion post. In 1952, the joint owners opened a new modern and much larger theatre on 13th Street that was their new Legion Theatre. The old theatre then became the Gulf Theatre and remained open into the 1980’s when it was closed and demolished during urban renewal.
