The Morris Theatre opened in 1931 with 725 seats.

I grew up going to this theatre back in 60s & 70s. I would love to find a night time photo from back in the day when the entire marquee/neon was all lit up. It was quite breathtaking. Note: In the summer of 1979 when they made it into a twin cinema & destroyed the classic interior of this old theatre. (big mistake)

Is that 1976 photo of the marquee advertising an X rated movie?

The theater has been de-twinned and is now a christian youth center. It was a neat theater but somewhat dirty. Still it was sad to see it go – now we have to drive out to the fringe of town and go to the megaplex.
