The Pekin Theater continued the striking style of Elmer Behrns (the Egyptian in Dekalb, Illinois and the Arcada in St. Charles, Illinois). The interior decor was Oriental including ancient Chinese pogodas and Chinese goddess figures. Similiar to other theaters of the late 20’s, the ceiling “stars” delivered the atmosphere to compliment the decor.
The Pekin closed in 1980 and was demolished seven years later.
