Pratt’s Theatre was initially an opera house, constructed some time after 1902, most likely by/for J.R. Pratt. It was a wide brick building with a two story fly tower at the rear. If I understand the notations on the Sanborn maps, it was either a very tall one story, or went from one to two stories, most likely toward the front, although the slope is very gentle. The 1907 Cahn guide credits it with a capacity of 800. By 1917, it is noted as showing ‘Moving Pictures & Vaudeville’. The theatre was directly across the street from the Gem Theatre. Street number was likely 11 or 13. It was demolished years ago, and the site is now a parking lot for an ugly modern bank.
