The Grand Theatre goes back prior to 1926 when it seated 200. It was rebuilt in 1949 bringing the seating to 320. Since the remodel took place in 1949 it very well could have been a Quonset Hut style.

I question it being a Quonset Hut. The U.S. Navy didn’t start to develop the Quonset Hut untill 1941 at Quonset Point, Rhode Island. This theater was alredy 10 years old!

There is a BIG Quonset Hut still standing on Main Street in Parshall.

More info and photos are always welcome.
