The Mirror Theatre was in operation at least as early as April, 1923, which is the date given byt the Putnam Museum for this photo showing several buildings in the 100 block of Third Street, with the Mirror at far left.

Grand opening ad for the Mirror Theatre on April 15, 1911 is photos. The theatre appears to have closed May 12, 1934 with subsequent articles discussing tax delinquency with the operators. In February of 1936, the floor is leveled and the building is gutted for future retail purposes.
