Opened in the 1930’s and located on the Army Base it was built as a WPA project. I saw a revival of Walt Disney’s “Dumbo” here in 1972 for .50C which was cheap even then. It may have even been a double feature but I can’t recall. Filled with Army Base children – not many if any adults.

It has stood empty and unused since the mid-1990’s, but plans may be forthcoming to reopen and restore the building.

Ten years ago I viewed the theater with the hopes of reopening it but was shocked at what I encountered…
Upon its departure, the U.S. Army idiots completely stripped the building of everything that could be taken. Yes, even the ceiling lights down to the toilet tissue holders!!!
