Johnny H. Jones and Ruby Jones bought the theatre circa 1945, remodeled and re-named it the JAKE in honor of their father, Jake Jones, Sr. The Jones family also operated the Ritz Theatre, one block west on Main Street Shawnee at the same time.

Could have been named the Jake as early as 1945?

Open ~1955? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

Owned by Momand Theaters, Inc. in 1930.
