Address is wrong, and the map marker has ended up in Baring. There is no 123 N Main, the highest number is 121. The theater was at 304 E Lafayette. For some reason, there is no 302, and two storefronts numbered 304. Very soon after closing, it looks like it was converted to retail. It is currently vacant.

The building was built in 1881 for Phillip B. Linville, who constructed several of the buildings downtown. It was the original home of the Bank of Edina, before it moved to the corner in 1907. It was also home to the telephone exchange and the post office before it became a theater. I assume the name of the theater was a combination of Linville and Edina.
