Some recent research might provide a little clarification to the above –

The original Sioux Theater was located in the 2-story building currently standing at 809 Central. This building was constructed in 1924 as the Dunlap Theater. It became the Tivoli Theater in 1928 under the ownership of Jack Bouma. In 1939, the theater changed hands and names again, becoming the Sioux Theater. In 1961, when the theater building was converted into Streit Pharmacy, the Sioux Theater name transferred over to the former Comet Theater at 710 Central that is discussed above.

The original Dunlap Theater (later Tivoli and Sioux Theater) building is still standing and I would recommend a new separate entry to help eliminate confusion.
