Built by veteran exhibitor George E. Marr, the Marr Theatre opened in 1938, with local architect Samuel C. Allen credited with the design. Ancient Mayan temples were given a modern twist in the exterior and interior decor. All 725 seats were on the ground floor. The Marr Theatre closed decades ago, but the building still stands as a commercial conversion.

It’s beem renovated into commercial space shown in the Google Street view. When it’s no longer rentable, I suppose the owner will consider other options, including demolition.
