The Chinese Garden Theater opened in 1930. It was owned by Earl Jennings, Sr., whose son, Earl Jr., invented the Music Tone Talkie, a modified version of the then current "talkie" projector which featured a chain drive that better kept the movie and sound in sync.

Later known as the Garden Theater, it had closed by 1941.

It took a while to figure out where this one had been located. It has since been home to a dairy and a dentist.
