Horne's Big Show Theatre

Horne’s Nickelin Theatre was a nickelodeon theatre that opened in 1908. Two projectors were used to give a continuous performance from 10:00am until 11:00pm daily. Later known as Horne’s Big Show Theatre, it was closed in the 1920’s.

The Art Deco styled Title Insurance Building was built on the site in 1928 and still stands there in 2005.

Dr. C.H. White, rectal specialist (“I cure piles”) was located at 423 S. Spring in 1913, presumably not in the theater proper, at least one would hope. An earlier ad for a Dr. Melvin Sykes at 423 ½ S. Spring promised cures for “strictures, piles, varicocele and ruptures”. Maybe it was something in their diet. No ads for the theater yet, but I will keep looking.
