The Gray County Commercial Buildings Survey, written around 2010 by Davis Preservation for the Gray County Historical Society, accessed 111 N. Main Street this way: “The building housed a movie theatre (known locally as “The Picture Show”). The theatre was managed by Frank Morris, who was in this position by 1930. Art Ashcraft was the projectionist. The theatre was in business until the 1960’s”.

The 1942 Film Daily Year Book included the Cimarron Theatre under Cimarron KS, with 300 seats.

The Denver Post wrote on July 9, 1947 that Pueblo’s first drive-in theatre “will be operated by L. (Lionel) R. Semon, who has been in the theatre business in Cimarron, Kan., for thirteen years”. In May 2019 the building is in use as a hairdresser named Hair Center/Plus.
