Thanks for bringing that up, JAlex. I read recently that Komm opened the Will Rogers (in an existing building remodeled by the Boller firm) to head off competition from other exhibitors: Another company would be less likely to move into Collinsville if Komm had two theaters downtown instead of just one! At this time, the Will Rogers building is for sale. The most distinctive remainder from the Boller design is a pair of very 1930s staircases leading to the balcony.

Both the Will Rogers and the Miners Theatres were operated by Sam Komm.
