Now functions as a respite center for special needs families.

The correct address of the Spot Theater is 304 E. Main Street. The NRHP Registration Form for the Siloam Springs Downtown Historic District says that the Spot Theatre was built in 1943. I don’t know what caused the delay in its opening until 1946, but it might have been related to wartime restrictions on civilian construction projects.

At the time of construction, adjacent small commercial buildings on each side of the theater were given tile fronts to match the new theater building.

This 1982 photo from American Classic Images shows the theater closed, but with its marquee and vertical sign still intact.

Wasn’t there also a theater in Siloam Springs called the Spring? It was not downtown but sort of off to the side off a main thoroughfare out in another part of town? It was in operation in the 70’s, if I recall correctly.
