February 20, 1920, John B Lueken purchased the Macklind Theatre, 5415 Arsenal Street from Paul Steffan, a neighborhood barber. One of the first improvements was to install 350 chairs, purchased from the Wagner family who closed the Webster Theatre. The Macklind was modernized and seating capacity increased to 640. The theatre closed about 1951. — from my family history.
