The Electric Theater was the first movie theater in Eldon, and first showed silent movies before converting to talkies. It was owned and operated by Oscar Dowell in the 1920’s, and later owned by Tom and Connie Edward into the 1930’s, closing in 1933. It was located on S. Maple Street, just north of the corner of E. 1st Street and S. Maple Street.

The Electric Theatre was listed as closed in 1933. Seating was listed at 500. It closed a couple years after the Ozark Theatre opened. The address was 111 S. Maple St., the building has been demolished.

Address or description is wrong. 111 S Maple would have been in the middle of the block, south of 1st. There is indeed a vacant lot south of 107, which might have been where the theater was. The 1920 Sanborn shows a bunch of small wooden shops there, but of course they might have been demolished to be replaced by a theater.
