The Hilander was the project of local business men… Albert Tate, Johnny Winsick and Joseph Glorisso. It was a state of the art theater, for its time, with a smoke room on the left side of the projection room and a cry room on the right,each with approximately 12 seats.The theater comfortable. A year or so after opening 4 track magnetic sound, with surround was added to enhance cinemascope presentations….but was not used very often because of extra rental cost and availability of magnetic prints. The theater was long and somewhat narrow which made it impossible to twin or quad so it stands empty.It was the only area theater that had a curtain.

By the way, the whole plaza is for sale for $319,000, not just the theater. It’s located in a pretty good area.
