Boxoffice, Feb. 6, 1954: “The Canby Theatre has reopened under the management of Mr. and Mrs. Herald McKellips, who … bought the theatre business and leased the building from Irvin Westenskow of Woodburn. The Canby Theatre, originally opened Nov. 1, 1950, was closed last November by the O. A. Nelsons for lack of patronage.”
