The Locke was build using the walls of the Jackson Theatre which burned August 29, 1959. That theatre appears to have launched in 1935 by Locke Bolen replacing another long-running Jackson Theatre. The Jackson was rebuilt by Bolen and relaunching as the Locke Theatre on June 23, 1960 with “The Big Circus.”
