September 29, 2020, Courtesy Lost Iowa: Inside Ottawa: Featuring pictures (added to gallery) of Ottawa’s old Elmdale Theatre, which closed in 1994 and became a church. Shared by Richard Vernon who writes: “Soon to be lost! The old Elmdale theatre built in 1947, is currently Cornerstone House of Refuge Church. It has been sold and the congregation will be leaving in two years from what I was told. I was there servicing their Hammond organ and the Pastor graciously allowed me to take some pictures of the place before I left. What’s amazing is the side scrim and seats are all original and in situ. Also, notice the camera window for the left theatre. As a side note, they split the theatre into two in 1981. I remember going here in the mid ‘70’s as a kid. Rest assured, the future owner will not be preserving the building. 🙁”
