The Bond Theater opened in 1939 in what was formerly the Oddfellows Hall (itself replacing a turn-of-the-20th-century retail store in the same building). It was originally part of the Frisina Amusements chain. The Bond featured a large vertical sign and a triangular marquee, both illuminated by neon lighting.
By the late 70s, the theater was in need of remodeling, especially the tall vertical sign, which was in danger of collapsing. However, instead of remodeling the theater, Frisina opted to shutter it.
An antique mall operated in its lobby for some time before it was completely rebuilt and reopened as a triplex showing first-run movies.
