Previous Names: Opera House, Stallings' Opera House
This theatre was located in the Opera House, a large two-story brick building constructed some between 1900 (when the map shows a vacant lot) and 1905.
The ground floor was divided into two storefronts, and a central stairway led up to the 500-seat auditorium. It is first listed as a cinema around 1914. By 1921 the Grand Theatre had moved to a purpose built theatre building located at 111, Whitfield Street (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures)
The building was demolished long ago, and the foundation is used as a space for the local farmers' market. There is a very old tile inscription in the sidewalk denoting where it used to be.
