The Grand was a very early theater. A March 3, 1945, Boxoffice article about the retirement of long-time showman Hort Ulrich says that he had worked at the Grand in Salina sometime between WWI and 1922.

The Grand was mentioned in The Reel Journal of June 6, 1925, when it was running “Charly’s Aunt” with Sydney Chaplin, and in Motion Picture Times of July 7, 1928, when it was showing an MGM release, “The Patsy” with Marion Davies.

The Reel Journal of October 2, 1926, listed the Grand as one of the theaters operated by M. B. Shamberg’s Midland Theatres circuit.
