The Criss Theatre was open in 1944. Seating was listed at 275. The theatre operated thru the mid-1950’s. This might have been known as the Tivoli Theatre prior to the Criss Theatre but I could find nothing to substantiate that.

As Marshall University Alumni (‘92, GO HERD!), I do not recall a theater at this location during my time there (1988-1992). NE corner was the Intramural Field, now tennis courts, SE corner was the Twin Towers West Residence Hall, SW corner was Holderby Residence Hall and NW corner was Hodges Residence Hall (I believe that building has been demolished as well).

At any rate, if the address is correct, this theater has been demolished since at least 1988 and most likely since 1970 since that’s the date of the oldest building currently at that intersection.
