The Dean Theater opened in 1912 as a motion picture and vaudeville house and survived as a movie theater at least into the 1940’s. It now houses a hobby and home decorating store.

It probably is; I was not able to find out much more than what is in the above article from any other online source.

In 1913 it could seat 430, with a stage that could accomodate a company of 15 to 20, with a box either side and plaster of paris decorations. In the basement there was a heating plant under the stage and it was being managed at that time by Messrs. Ballenger and Ballenger.
