A Box Office story from June 3, 1950 shows this house operating as the Cooper Theater, looking much the same as it does now.

It was called the cooper Theatre into at least the late 1950’s. Should have an AKA Cooper Thesatre

The Brazil Times published a letter from John Weddle in 2011 which can be read on this web page. It says that the Cooper Theatre replaced the Sourwine Theatre on the same site and opened in February, 1948. The Sourwine had been destroyed by fire in early 1947.
