The Roosevelt was owned by Alex and Medva Silay in the early 1960s. The building still stands but is not in use at the present time.

Correction. Building was demolished in the late 1980’s to make way for a new bridge into Bentleyville.

Here is an article from the Valley Independent in March 1984, confirming the opost above. Status should be changed to closed/demolished and the introduction updated.

Plans to replace a bridge in Bentleyville sometime in September have been revealed by the Pigeon Creek Sanitary Authority. The bridge, located near Orsath’s Supermarket on Main Street, will be raised slightly to provide adequate water clearance.

A temporary roadway will be constructed around the bridge to accommodate traffic but before this is done, the Roosevelt Theater will be razed. The theater has been vacant for about twenty years.
