The Dreamland Theatre opened in 1907 at 223 S. Main Street, and sat about 275. It closed temporarily in 1931, and reopened later the same year as the Stanley, and was now showing “talking pictures”. It closed in 1937.
A new Stanley Theatre opened later in 1937, now on 113 S. Main Street, and sat more than twice the amount of the old Stanley. It was designed in Art Moderne style, and had a large, triangular-shaped marquee, illuminated by neon lights.
The second Stanley operated until the late 60s, when it closed. The long-shuttered movie house had its final cinematic moment in the spotlight in 1989, when it was used in the movie “Field of Dreams” as “the Plaza Theatre”, complete with a temporary old-fashioned marquee.
The building currently houses The Store Next Door, a home accessories shop.
