This theater had a unique construction. After you bought a ticket, you would walk down a flight of stairs and then find yourself in the theater balcony.

The Main Street was destroyed in a fire in May 1941. It was rebuilt to the plans of architect Michael J. DeAngelis. It was destroyed by fire a second time in the mid-1970’s.

I am pretty sure that the theatre building survived into the mid 1970’s when it was destroyed by fire. I was one of teh fireman that responded on a mutual aid call form over 70 miles away. Not quite sure what month it was but I know it was below zero that morning.

The Main Street Theatre must have been destroyed by fire twice if signsell is correct. The June 6, 1941, issue of The Film Daily said that architect Michael J. DeAngelis was preparing plans for rebuilding the Main Street Theatre in Galeton, which had recently destroyed by a fire. The house was definitely rebuilt, as the Main Street was mentioned in the July 9, 1945, issue of the Daily, when the theater was taken over by Lewis Hauser from J. A. Nordquist.
