“Everything is in readiness for the formal opening of the new Isis Theater on Main Street. Tonight at 7 o'clock the doors will be thrown open, and the performance will start a half hour later.

While the lobby is not finished, the interior is complete, and a pleasant surprise is in store for local theatergoers. The house is done in dark green trimmed with cream and white. The lights, of which there are many, are tastily arranged, and the new theater will be a splendid addition to Medford’s amusements.

The Great Marshall Show, which is to furnish the vaudeville portion of the program, comes to Medford with the highest recommendation, and it is doubtful if a more happy choice could have been made in the selection of the opening attraction. Manager Marshall of the company is a hustler and has spared no pains in advertising the Isis Theatre’s opening. For the past three days he has kept bill poster Cannon busy posting the enormous posters advertising the attraction, and it is safe to predict that two crowded houses will turn out for the grand opening.

Marshall will be seen in a burlesque spiritual seance that is said to be a scream. Ethlynde Roberts is reported to have a clever act, while Eddie Van, the tramp cartoonist, is expected to create many laughs. Martette has been one of the most novel turns in vaudeville. The Isis Theatre orchestra will be handled by J. G. Stephens, who resigned his position at the Star Theatre in Portland to accept the local postilion. Miss Hazel Kennedy will sing a beautifully illustrated song. Quite a pretentious show. Good luck to the Isis Theatre."

(Medford Mail Tribune, May 22, 1910, P.2)

The Isis Theatre operated until at least 1914.
