This cute little theater on the courthouse square is in pretty shabby shape. The facade is low and wide with a tile roof and an orange brick shamrock design in the center. The marquee is quite simple, and the ‘P’ is missing. The windows in the upper story are boarded over. The outdoor booth is now inside a shop window for what seems to be a used clothing place.
There was a history of the theater posted (an article from a 1970’s newspaper). I wish I had just photographed it, but the gist was that it had been a very busy theater up to the late-1950’s, but closed at some point. It was then rescued by a couple in the early-1970’s who invested a lot of money in it, but got into trouble with distributors because they refused to carry ‘R’ rated movies.
