The Valencia was the bigger of the two major theatres at one time. The Valencia opened in 1931 and located on N. Rollins. It was still listed as open in 1958.

On its January 16, 1930 Grand Opening, Mayor D.L. Dempsey launched the theater prior to the feature “The Lady Lies.” The atmospheric Spanish architectural themed Valencia Theatre was off to a great start until the feature started. So bad was the sound system that the theater shut down for six weeks to improve the sound system relaunching February 28, 1930. Six years later, the theater installed a new sound system, new projection, and a new gold screen hoping to have a better presentation. On December 1, 1956, the theater closed down showing a double feature of “Dakota Incident” and “Flame of the Islands”.

I cannot figure out exactly where this was, but it has been demolished. There’s a photo of it on this page:

I cannot match any existing buildings to a view of Rollins in any way that makes sense.
