This building was constructed around 1929 as the Casino Theater. The building contained both a movie theater and a dance hall during the 1930s and 1940s. The name changed to the Sac Theatre at some point before 1955. It is currently vacant.

I spent my summers in Lake View, eight miles to the south, in the 1980s. We would receive weekly advertising circulars which would feature movie theater ads for the region (Carroll, Ida Grove, Lake City, Sac City). Sac City always had strange movies, like “Snow White and the Three Stooges”. Either they couldn’t afford the rental of newer movies, or the screen and projector was a remnant of Cinemascope.

If memory serves, the theater did replace the screen sometime in the late 1980s. I believe the old screen had vertical metallic louvers which had to be calibrated anytime something was thrown at the screen.
