The 1941 edition of Film Daily Yearbooks lists the Royal Theatre 500 seats, and the Rio Theatre (Closed) 500 seats. In the 1943 edition of FDY, only the Rio is listed, operated by Paramount, but (Closed). By 1950, the Rio was operating again.

In the 1940’s, there is also a Rob Burns Theatre operating in Van Buren with 631 seats. This has gone from listings by 1950.
