Oregon Theatre, Oregon, Illinois

Opened in 1905 as the Star Theatre, a 190-seat vaudeville house which later also showed silent films, this theatre was renamed the Oregon Theatre in the early-1940’s, and also increased its size to over 400, when it was expanded into the next-door former grocery store space.

In 1965, the Oregon Theatre was acquired by the Kerasotes Theatres chain, which operated it until 1981, when it was closed. Afterward, the former movie house was turned into an electronics store.

Its sloping floor and triangular-shaped marquee (which now advertises the name of the store) still remain.
