The Dickenson Theatre Theatre opened in 1932. Seating was listed at 514. It was renamed Grand Theatre in 1940. The theatre had a couple different operators, Griffith Theatres and Theatre Enterprises.

The Grand Theatre closed in 1954 and was later repurposed for a Moore Equipment Co. Any further information on the Grand Theatre would be appreciated.

Back in the late 1940’s my mother would give me a quarter to go to the Saturday afternoon matinee at the Grand Theater in Chillicothe, Missouri. It cost me fourteen cent to get into the theater which included two Grade B movies (one western and the other a mystery) plus a serial (for some reason I only remember the Superman ones) and a cartoon. The other eleven cents went for a box of popcorn (ten cents) and a penny for the candy machine. It was always a great afternoon. About the only thing I remember about the building itself was the fact that it had a log cabin facade. Frank Griggs
