The Diamond Theater was an early movie theater which was opened prior to 1914. It was operated in the early-1920s by Messrs. Hill and Torrey according to 1921 Polk’s Michigan Business Directory.

1936 reference of a performance by a crystal reader that upset the townspeople. The Diamond Theater was renamed Lake Theater around 1939. It was still open in 1950.

The Lake Theater was on 4th Avenue, rather than 4th Street, which is entirely residential. The theater was on the west side of 4th Avenue a few doors north of 2nd Street. Google doesn’t provide a good street view, and Bing maps doesn’t have a proper bird’s eye, either. Although satellite view shows that there is currently a building on the theater’s site, I can’t be sure which of the buildings on that section of the block it is, or if it’s old or of modern construction.
