Grand Theater

The Grand Theater was opened in the 1920’s, and closed in 1954. Apparently the building still stands today.

I wonder if the Grand Theatre was the same house earlier called the Grand Opera House, which was mentioned in the June 24, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World. A Mr. Otey, the operator, had lately had the house remodeled and the floor lowered five feet.

A Grand Theatre at Robinson is listed in the 1908-1909 Cahn guide as a ground floor house with 810 seats. I’ve been unable to find an address for the 1916 and 1908 theaters, so I don’t know if they are the same Grand as the one operating in the 1920s.
