Mr. Otto Smallfield opened the Smallfield Theatre in 1914. The theatre was located on Washington Street right at 16th Street. This area at the time was a 90% German neighborhood. From 1916 thru 1929 it was known as the Eagle Theatre, from 1929 thru 1933 the Northwest Theatre. It then became the Empire Theatre followed by the Washington Theatre, the Times Theatre and finally the Town Theatre.

The theatre closed in 1953, probably worn out from having so many names. The building still stands though.

Any further information on this theatre would be appreciated.
