The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Community; it’s Card # 349. Address is Main St. There is an exterior photo dated April 10, 1941. Condition is Poor. The report says that it opened in 1909, was not showing MGM films, and had 500 seats. The 1940 population was 1,200.

In some small towns naming a theater “Community” implied that it was located in a town building, such as a town hall or a community center. I don’t know if that’s the case with this theater.
