The Lewiston Morning Tribune reported on June 20, 1954 that a fire had destroyed the Deary Theater. The American Legion built the building in 1922 and it served as community hall and theater.

It was purchased by Walter Campbell in May of 1948 and remodeled with a fireproof booth and upholstered seats. Boxoffice Magazine noted on March 6, 1948 that Mr. Campbell operated theaters in Genesee, Lapwai, Asotin, Peck, and Emida.

The Film Daily Yearbook of 1950-51 listed the theater with 200 seats and the Sanborn Maps of 1928 placed it on the Southeast corner.
