Opened on April 5, 1947 with Larry Parks in “The Jolson Story” & a Walt Disney cartoon “Funny Bunnies”. The Chief Theatre stood on the west side of the street in the middle of the 4600 block (between K and L Streets) on South 24th Street in Omaha. It’s marquee was the profile of an Indian Chief in a large head dress. I believe orange and maroon were the dominate colors of the facade and marquee, but I could be mistaken.
It had murals painted on the auditorium walls that shimmered and glowed when the lights were down, and depicted a water fall scene with Native-American figures, canoes, and campfires to the best of my recollection. In the 1960’s this theatre showed beach party pictures, cheaply-made horror films, and biker flicks.
