The DuBois Opera House (later known as the Grand Theater) was built in 1886 and frequently showed short motion pictures starting in 1897, and sometimes shown along with vaudeville acts. This continued until at least 1914 despite the Globe Theater opening down the street in 1907. In 1910 it was renamed Grand Theater.
The building was destroyed by a tornado on Palm Sunday, March 1920. Two performers were killed as they were preparing for that evenings show. The Rialto Theatre was built on the site, opening in April 1921 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
