Boxoffice of February 23, 1957, said that the renovated Valentine Theatre had reopened as the Towne Theatre. It was being operated by Irving Reinhart when mentioned in Boxoffice of April 18, 1960, the last mention I’ve found of it in that publication.

There’s new construction at this address – this theater is demolished.

The January 23, 1915, issue of The Moving Picture World provided this item about the Valentine Theatre:

“CANTON, O. — E. G. Backins and C. H. Frailey have opened their new theater, the Valentine. It has seating capacity for about 800 persons. The house is devoted to the exhibit of moving pictures, but so constructed as to be easily converted into a vaudeville or stock house.”
