Clark Theater

Opened in 1895 as the K.P. Opera House showing vaudeville acts. Was converted to a movie house in the early-1900’s and was purchased in 1920 by Clark Armentrou who refurbished the theater by adding air conditioning and other amenities, and renamed it Clark Theater.

It lasted until 1950, when Armentrou renovated an existing auto parts store at 209 N. Madison Street into a modern movie theater, naming it the Zoe Theater after his granddaughter and closing the Clark Theater for good. The building still stands today, hosting a Reach Out Center.
