This article from the Baxter Bulletin of May 30, 2014, says that the Baxter Theatre opened on January 3, 1948, and closed on December 21, 1978.

The former theater is now one of two buildings on the block occupied by First Security Bank. I’m not sure what the bank uses this building for, as their retail operation for Mountain Home appears to be in the building across Baker Street, but it might contain offices as the south wall has been fenestrated. The distinctive masonry detailing on the facade is still there, though it is now painted gray.

Is this the theatre that was near the Wal Mart?
If so, I saw Cannonball Run, and Superman II while on my senior summer vacation, while visiting grandparents.

As of February 2008, the theater building is being used by First Security Bank for training purposes.
