This mid-sized theatre was built in 1938 for and initially operated by Weingarten Theatres. Later taken over by Wometco Theatres. From time to time they ran first run films and second runs. I remember in the 1970’s the theatre ran the American Film Theatre subscription series which included “A Delicate Balance” with Katharine Hepburn.
When Wometco gave up on this theatre it ran as an independent house for a while. I believe it shuttered in the 1990’s. When last I heard the theatre had become a gymnasium, which has since closed. By early-2017 it had converted to retail use.
