Oops I had something extra in the Google Map link. Here is the correct link to the old location. https://www.google.com/maps/place/429+Mainstreet,+Hopkins,+MN+55343/

The location in the Google map is wrong. I was born in the forties and this wonderful theater was my local Sat. Matinee theater, only about 3 ½ blocks from my house. Excelsior Blvd used to go through Hopkins where it was named Excelsior Ave. Sometime after the Sixties a new freeway, 169, was run through and Excelsior Blvd was diverted and later Excelsior Ave was renamed to Main Street. The map shows the location on the current Excelsior Blvd. I entered 429 Main Street and got the correct location of the old theater. https://www.google.com/maps/place/429+Mainstreet,+Hopkins,+MN+55343/United Palace of Cultural Arts.9244053,-93.4050505,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x87f6203bdf6a8d61:0x7fef486cb1e8adb6
