The Arcade Theatre launched in March of 1913 in downtown Evergreen. The theatre switched to Western Electric sound on Ocorber 27, 1930. Under new operators, the theatre was further updated and renamed the Evergreen Theatre on February 21, 1931.

The Evergreen Theatre was under pressure when Martin and Ray Circuit broke ground on a neighboring new-build theatre in 1936. That theatre, the Pix Theatre, launched December 24, 1936. The two theatres co-existed less than a year.

The Evergreen Theatre was purchased by the Martin and Ray Circuit, which never operated it, in May of 1937. The Circuit simply dismantled the theatre closing it on May 13, 1937 after a showing of William Gargan in “Flying Hostess” to have a monopoly with its Pix Theatre.
