112 South Main Street,
No one has favorited this theater yet
Open from about 1906-1909. It is difficult to ascertain whether the building once housing the Dixie Theater exists or not. There is still a building on the northeast corner of S. Main Street and Barbaro Alley, but it has a later front portion. This is a postcard view of the portion of Main Street containing the Waldorf Cafe from before 1920 at this location. The first listing for a Waldorf Cafe near this address is from 1905-1906.
The Dixie Theater was said to be upstairs, possibly in a former hotel site. Wonderland, also in the photo, could be an arcade or a nickelodeon. No information has been located outside this image and it is just as much an enigma as the Dixie Theater.
