The Elite Theatre was a small downtown house located on W. 2nd Street at N. Harrison Street. It was opened by 1904 and seating for the theatre was listed at 302.

I could find no closing time line for the Elite Theatre but the building has been demolished and high rise office building is in its place. Any further info on the Elite Theatre would be appreciated.

The Elite is listed in the Davenport City Directories of 1907 through 1915 at 309-11 W. 2nd. This was a vaudeville house and film theater that opened circa 1904 and in the fall of that year they screened the historic early film The Great Train Robbery.
