The Family Theatre on Chase Street launched in this location showing movies in the latter part of the first decade of the 1900s and is where the film of the Titanic sinking played. But the theatre didn’t pay its taxes and the theatre was converted to a garage. The space was then converted back to a theatre called the Chase Street Theatre opening March 1, 1928 with the Vitaphone “Don Juan.” A George Kilgen & Son Wonder Organ was also there at the opening. The theatre closed eight years later and was purchased by a non-profit organization which converted the theatre to the Rainbow Room playing live concerts. That folded quickly.

The operators of the Temple Theatre — the Kane Theatre Company — purchased the former Chase Street Theatre in 1936. They renamed it the Kane Theatre launching December 3, 1936. It looks as if the owners didn’t renew their 20-year lease as films cease in 1956. For a short time, sermons are heard there. Then the space becomes the Teen Club where Gene Vincent appears live. And when that left the building, there’s very little action other than an auction and another sale.
