The Dale Theatre opened in 1918. It was operated by Finkelstein & Ruben between 1925 and 1929, then by the Publix Theatres Corporation Northwest Division until 1935. I saw it in passing in 1959; it was closed, having been shuttered in about 1955.

TIME Magazine reported that Dale Theater owners Rubenstein & Kaplan tried a hardline action against TV and rowdy teenagers by barring adolescents, except those accompanied by adults, from their Dale Theater and claimed success in bringing adults back to the movies. They then reopened the long-closed Arion Theater with the same policy.
