Grand opening was April 1, 1938. Commonwealth closed the theatre for the third time on November 16, 1947 citing lack of patronage and letting a ten year lease lapse. As a weekend-only and closing in the summer months operation due to lack of air conditioning, the theater’s last cinematic offering was appropriately enough, “Ridin' Down the Trail.” It was used for live events by a variety of interests mostly for church services thereafter. In 1959, the theater was converted to apartments and retail usage.
