A moderately sized vaudeville house which opened in 1907. It was designed by architects I.M. Medford and Matthew G. Lepley and had a seating capacity for 250. In 1909, it was enlarged to 900 seats by architects Harding & Upman. By 1913 it was showing silent films and vaudeville.

Renovations were carried out in 1923 and the vaudeville was booked by the Keith circuit, while the movies were booked by the Stanley organization.

In 1924 it was renamed Mutual Theater and operated as a burlesque theatre. It closed in the late-1920’s.
