Opened at the Uptown Theatre in 1935 with seating listed at 490. It was located on Harrison Street between 14th Street & 15th Street. Changed names to the Coronet Theatre in the 1970’s when it went to an adult movie program.

The Coronet Theatre closed in 1980 and has since been demolished. There is a vacant lot where the theatre once stood.

I remember the Coronet Theater before it went to adult films. It happened to grab on to the “Sound of Music” after the first run and showed that film for almost an entire year along with a few other films.

From a 2009 QC Times Article: “After the war, (Jim) Stopulos sold life insurance briefly and then opened the Coronet Theater on Davenport’s Washington Street at the suggestion of his brother-in-law, who ran an art theater in Iowa City. Later, he moved the Coronet to what had been the Uptown in the Harrison Hilltop neighborhood.

During his 25 years in the theater business, he also owned the Sierra in Moline, the Spruce Hills Twin in Bettendorf, the Central in Geneseo and the Strand in East Moline. He remained in the theater business until 1976, a time when competition from big chains made it difficult for independent operators to survive.
