In 1939, T. Clyde Killebrew both architected and launched the 527-seat Grand Theatre in downtown Siloam Springs retaining his nearby Rialto Theatre. During World War II, the Grand Theatre became the town’s theatre as, on September 9, 1942, Killebrew would close the Rialto Theatre until after the War.

After the War, a new theatre – the Spot Theatre – was built opening November 9, 1946. The three theatre town dropped to two when – in March of 1948 – the Rialto Theatre burned badly, ending its run. That left the Grand Theatre and the Spot Theatre for the movie dollars. The Grand Theatre finally went out of business and the building was converted to a bowling alley.

According to the NRHP Registration Form for the Siloam Springs Downtown Historic District, the building in which the Grand Theatre was later located was built around 1920 as a commercial structure. The Grand operated in the 1940s and 1950s, and was used as a bowling alley during the 1960s. The front and the faux mansard roof are modern alterations, but the dentilated and corbeled brick cornice along the Center Street side is original.
