Torsten is right. If you look on Google earth in 1993. You can see the theatre building still there in front of what would become Aldi.

It was on the east side of 90th Street, next to the Papio Creek. The address in the ad above is now an Aldi market. All of the businesses on that side of 90th were free standing buildings. Because of the Papio, that side of 90th was never as successful as other parts.

In later years, rather shop-worn, it became a 99-cent movie theater.
