Lying deep within a very large PDF document prepared for the NRHP is the information that the Mode Theatre, built in 1936, was designed by architect William Pereira. The document also says that the Mode was the town’s “…first taste of Modern architectural design….”

A March, 2014, article about the Mode Theatre can be found on this page of the web site of The Republic, the local newspaper. No photos, unfortunately, but the story says that the Mode Theatre opened on December 3, 1937.
