The Broadway Theatre opened on June 2, 1926 with Ernest Torrence in “The Rainmaker”. It was designed by architects Carl Boller and A. Godfrey Bailey for Ed Yost. It was equipped with a ‘mammouth’ organ which was opened by organist Bartley Sims. By 1950 it was operated by Cabart Theaters Corp. A fire on February 25, 1952 caused heavy damage to the theatre, but it was rebuilt and reopened on March 16, 1955 as the New Broadway Theatre, screening Van Heflin in “Battle Cry”. The Broadway Theatre closed in 1987. In 1989, another fire destroyed much of the theatre, and a year later, it was demolished.
