The Highland Electric Theatre launched April 1, 1908 in the existing, 1891-constucted Tontz-Hirschl Building. In 1928, Griffith Amusements took on the Highland downgrading it to weekend operation only. The theatre received sound in the summer of 1929 but only operated into early 1930s with the building being condemned in 1931. However, the building was repaired and used for retail purposes beginning in 1936.
