Tom Hamilton mentions the Fairview Theatre in a couple of articles and in his book, but he gives the address as 119 E. Fairview. He also says that it opened in 1909, was soon renamed the Lyric Theatre, and then later renamed the Colonial Theatre. At some point the business was moved to 119 N. Buckeye Street (the book and this article say that this was in 1927, but this article doesn’t specify the date.)

The Colonial Theatre at Kokomo is mentioned in the February 5, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World, so if the move didn’t take place until 1927, the Fairview was last known as the Colonial. The second Colonial Theatre on N. Buckeye has its own Cinema Treasures page.
