The Towne Theater was operating prior to 1941. It was located on N. 6th Street, at the corner with W. Gordon Street.

It was an adult movie theater when it closed in the 1970’s. The building has been converted to apartments.

The Towne became a porn theater also in the 1960s…. It was either closed down or went out of business when porn became available on VHS about 1978/79 and in the early 80s the new owners did a gut renovation of the building, tearing out everything except the outside.

Today it’s an apartment building and you enter the property thoug a door that was a side fire door when it was a theater. But if you know what it looked like, you still can see where the front entrance was as the 2d and 3d floor looks the same…

Some photos taken by the local newspaper around 1982
