I remember this theater as the Northtown theater on the North-West corner of 26th Ave & Emerson avenue north. It was next to the Schweigert meat market. When Schweigert expanded, they took the space occupied by the Northtown. The autobody shop was on the south-east corner of the intersection. My dad worked as a butcher at the meat market in the late 1950’s
