  1. Claude Keller and A.J. “Dutch” Wilfert opened Eunice’s first theatre in September of 1911 with a seating capacity of just 80 in the Wyble Building on Park Avenue. Due to their success, they moved to this S. 2nd Street location creating the second Electric Theatre.

Keller and Wilfert strung four electric lights in the street becoming the city’s first electric street lights. The silent theatre continued into 1920 when the business duo eventually replaced it with the Liberty Theatre. The Electric Theatre was demolished in the late-1920’s.
