There were two theaters at this location. The first, called the Highland Theatre, was a 300-seat, single-floor house that was demolished to make way for the much larger Lee Theatre. An article about the Lee appeared in Boxoffice, March 30, 1940.

The Lee Theatre was designed by Jack Corgan, of Corgan & Moore. The Boxoffice article claimed that the Lee had 950 seats, with 750 on the main floor and 200 in the segregated balcony. The art moderne style of the interior was achieved largely through paint effects in this budget project costing $25,000.
