The Tripoli Theater was opened in 1918 by James H. McDonald. There was an adjacent barber shop. It was closed when ‘talkies’ were being introduced in the late-1920’s.

The theater was opened and operated by my Grandfather, James H McDonald. He was also a barber. My father, James W McDonald and his brother Edward E also worked there and possibly also their sister Margaret. There was a pool hall in one of the buildings too.

Old_wiz66, you wouldn’t happen to have pictures of it as it was at that time would you?

Unfortunately we have no pictures from the time it was operating. We do know that he also (before?after) had an auto dealership, but not where it was.
