The Sommer’s Highway Theater opened in early-1925 with 1,100 seats. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer (Type B) organ. It was another single level neighborhood house that was later run by UA and then by Golden Theaters as a dollar house.
It had a very irregular schedule in its last days in the 1980’s, opening on holidays and in the summer only (much like the Golden Theater policy with the now-closed and retro-fitted Benson Twins).
It finally closed in 1988 and became a bingo hall and later a church with the bizzare name of Church of the Upper Deck. By 2002 it had reverted back to bingo hall use. In late-2008, the front of the building was removed and the auditorium was gutted and converted into a Walgreens pharmacy.
