The original interior of the Pine Theatre can be seen in three photos in a June 21, 1941, Boxoffice article about the rebuilding of the ventilation system in the house.

Hi this is Oniko Mehrabi, we would love to see any pictures of the theater please post them. You are also welcome to send me a email. Joe we have never seen any interior photos. To open the theater again everthing had to be to current building code so we feel to many things had to changed but it’s hard to tell. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE FOR ALL THE PHOTOS POSTED! I’m happy to see Cinema treasures updated, let me know how I can be of help. Also we are now a 2 screen and I hope you will all like the look. Thank you thank you Cinema Treasures

2 vintage photos added. Previous ownership noted in excerpt from the obituary for Wilma Piercy below.

She married Denzel M. Piercy on June 26, 1935, in Prineville. He was in partnership with his brother Kenneth in running the Lyric and Pine theaters in Prineville. Mrs. Piercy became a partner when they bought the Chief Theater and built the K & D Drive-In Theater in Madras. They enjoyed their role of providing movies for the community for many years until they retired in 1972.
