Fair Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theater was designed in the Prairie school style, with the street level receiving a streamline update at some point (although the old purple glass transoms remain). It’s a simple tan brick structure with white accents, and rather a lot of windows for a cinema. The vertical marquee seems to date from the late ‘20s or early '30s. It’s been turned into a community theater, and the lobby looks rather opulent.
