Missouri Valley was home to the Palm and Majestic (see photo of the latter) in the silent era. In the sound era it was the Valley and the Rialto, the latter surviving into the 21st Century.

dallasmovietheaters you have mentioned four theaters in Missouri Valley yet only the Rialto is on Cinema Treasures. Since you seem to know all about them how about putting them on CT. At that time it would be appropriate to put the photo of the Majestic which is on the Rialto site where it belongs.

Palm Theatre was an earlier name for the Rialto itself. The Palm was listed at 405 E. Erie Street in The American Motion Picture Directory published in 1915. The Palm opened on February 6, 1911, according to the February 10 issue of The Des Moines Register.
