Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The 1951 Film Daily Year Book listed the America (sic?) at “125 N. Main Street” with 508 seats.

On June 20, 1953, Motion Picture Herald wrote, “Fox Inter-Mountain Theatres has sold the American, Sterling, Colo., and the Coronado Theatre, Las Vegas, N. M., to the M & M Theatres Inc.”

An article in the Feb. 14, 2012 Daily Breeze of El Segundo CA, quoted by CT commenter Joe Vogel, said that around the 1950’s, his family would go to the movies in Sterling. “It was 9 cents at the American Theatre and about 12 at the ritzier Fox Theatre.”
