Another single floor theatre operated by the Komm Theaters chain, seated 711, It opened in 1937 as the Merry Widow Theatre but due to a fire in 1947 the theatre was gutted, rebuilt and reopened as the New Merry Widow Theatre with a seating capacity of 920.
The Merry Widow Theatre had a nice lobby with terazzo floors and a small concession stand in the southeast corner of the lobby. Three aisles into the auditorium one along each wall and one down the middle. Two small chandeliers in the auditorium. Draped walls lined the auditorium and covered the screen.
The Merry Widow Theatre was not one of the busiest theatres for the Komm Circuit as it was right on the outskirts of downtown and a lot of industrial was around the theatre. It had to rely on the housing developemnts just to the south of the theatre.
The Merry Widow Theatre closed as a movie theatre in 1955 and a year later became a auto repair shop.
