At the request of his lovely wife, in 1915 prosperous rancher Penn Adair constructed the Adair Theatre. The projection booth was located on the grand floor, beneath a shallow balcony. Included in the design was a stage, flanked by two dressing rooms to accommodate vaudeville acts. Around 1928 when talking pictures replaced silent films the Adair Theatre closed, and shortly thereafter the space was converted into a ranchers supply store. The store closed in 1963, and the building was demolished soon after.
