This theater was located east of downtown Winona. It opened in January 1919. It closed on October 25, 1942. The building was turned into a grocery store (the Broadway Super Saver) in the summer of 1955. Other businesses have occupied the building over the years. The building still stands today.

The November 2, 1918, issue of The Moving Picture World had an item about the Broadway Theatre:

“The new Broadway Theatre recently constructed at Winona, Minn., by H. A. Rolbiecki opened this week. The theatre has a seating capacity of 600. It is finished in golden rod brick and is modern in every respect. Mr. Rolbiecki opened the Strand at Winona two years ago, and also operated the Dream Theatre in that city. Both of these houses proved money makers.”
The Strand, by the way, was at either 71, 72, or 73 E. Third Street, according to a muddy scan of an item about it in the July 15, 1916, issue of The Moving Picture World. I haven’t discovered where the Dream Theatre was, but it is supposed to have opened in 1912.
