The Gennett Theatre was built in 1899 at N. 8th Street and N. A Street on the site of the Bradley Theatre which had burned down in 1898. It opened December 22, 1899 as a live theatre presenting “The Liars” performed by Otis Skinner & Company. The Gennett Theatre was remodeled reopening September 16, 1916 to become a movie house known as the Washington Theatre.
It became the Lawrence Theatre from October 14, 1926 reverting back to live theatre use. The theatre was closed in February 1931 and was razed in 1935. It was replaced by a gas station, which today serves as a real estate office.
