USA Theatre; Sidney, Nebraska.

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The U.S.A. Theatre was built during the big theater boom around World War 1 as a diversion from the horrors of war. The facade once lit up at night with light bulbs on the facade. In later years it was renamed Fox Theatre.

It was replaced by a new Fox Theatre along the street in 1951. Today most of the former U.S.A./Fox Theatre building houses a jewelry store.

The building is located within the Sidney Downtown Historic District.

The interior of the jewelry store (Alberts Diamondland) does not reveal much (or anything really) of the original interior. The street view from Google Maps gives a sense of how the light bulbs might have looked.

Note that the USA (or U.S.A.) Theatre was also known as the FOX.
