Opened in 1936 on Main Street in Collinsville, the Will Rogers was named for the cowboy/philosopher/movie star who died in a airplane crash in 1935. Other Illinois movie houses named for Will Rogers were located in Chicago and Charleston. The theater was designed by the Boller Brothers.
Unfortunately, this sleek Art Moderne style theater was no match for the popularity of the nearby Miners Theater, and the Will Rogers closed after just a few years in operation. It was converted into a store afterward, and remained so for years. It has most recently housed a coffee house.
