According to this history of Springfield’s theaters first published in 1927, the Grand Theatre opened at the southeast corner of Park Central Square in 1910. However, the July 12, 1910, issue of The Springfield News-Leader said that the Grand was at the southwest corner of the square.

I am wondering if perhaps the theater moved from the Kirby Arcade to the Elks' Arcade at some point, or if the writer of the 1927 article merely made a mistake.
