Boxoffice of November 29, 1952, carried a brief item saying that Truman R. Lewis had changed the name of his Park Theatre at Lutesville to Lewis Theatre, effective immediately.

The theater is not the only place that got a new name. Lutesville itself is now officially called the City of Marble Hill, as can be seen on the Google Maps street views. Marble Hill was a smaller nearby city that merged with Lutesville in 1985, and the name Marble Hill was retained because it had long been the County Seat.

I’ve been unable to find a photo of the Lewis Theatre, but have come across this drawing of it by artist Jeanie Eddleman. I can’t find a building resembling that in current Google street views, so it has either been remodeled beyond recognition or demolished.
