“F.W. Bailey has opened a motion picture show in the opera house at DeWitt,” said the Iowa notes section of Moving Picture World for August 14, 1915.

I found this small article on the DeWit Opera House: The DeWitt Opera House built in 1876. This large building had a sizable stage, orchestra pit, dressing rooms, a long balcony above the main floor audience and a lobby as the front entrance. This large theater is called a “stand-alone” opera house because the entire building was devoted to the theater and did not include space for another business.
