A biographical sketch of George J. Schade says that “[a]fter leaving the coal business in 1914, Schade opened and managed the Schade Theater, located on West Market St. in Sandusky.” The house most likely opened before the end of 1915. The July 24, 1915, issue of The American Contractor ran this item:

“Sandusky, O.—Motion Picture Theater & Commercial Bldg.: 2 sty. & bas. 44x188. $30M. Archt. H. C. Hunt, 411 Columbus av. Owner Geo. J. Schade, 922 Tiffin st. Gen. contr. let to Geo. Feick & Co., 420 Decatur st.”
Schade operated the theater until 1930, when it was leased to Warner Bros. The site at 207 W. Market Street is now part of a parking lot.
