Either this address is wrong or the street numbers have changed since it was in business. This location is now 4201 University Ave. and the building is being used as a market now.

Same building so it must have had an address change.

The trade press reports say this theatre opened as the Liberty Theatre in March of 1918. The Bush Circuit purchases the theatre and remodels the auditorium reducing seat count to 600 opening in November of 1920 as a second-run double-feature venue. The theatre transitions to sound and is supposedly renamed the Forum Theatre briefly. The theatre gets Western Electric sound in 1932 and is back under the Vista Theatre nameplate. Looks have discontinuity in operation and is transferred to Kaplan & Klein in 1935 which, for competitive reasons, likely closed and/or retrofitted the theatre building as it was opening the new Adams about two miles away.
