How many times did you say,“I am going to the Damn Theatre to finish those reports my box office girl didn’t do!”

Here is a website showing various stages of the gutting of the original Damm Theatre and its replacement with a modern, non-historic interior.

The original circa 1914 Damm Theatre and Bakery were across the street from the present Damm Theatre where a mini-park now sits. The present Damm Theatre was originally called the Columbia and was purchased by the Damms when they closed their early theatre.

Never heard of the Damm Good Pizza Parlor, but it must have come along a long time after the original Louis and Viola Damm ran the new Damm/Columbia Theatre.

The entirely new interior of the Damm today has nothing of the original interior. The exterior is largely as it was with a magnifcently restored marquee.

Also run by that Bavarian family next to their theater was the Damm Bakery and the Damm Good Pizza Parlor.

In the tome above, I made it sound as if the Wurlitzer organ was removed in 1989. Not true. The organ was removed during the early days of the depression.
