The Arcade Theater was originally opened by F.J. Folger on February 1, 1908. Despite having as many as ten different owners it retained its original name and had a good 13 year run, closing in 1921. It was Denison’s first successful theater although few remember that it ever existed.

The Arcade’s first advertisement is on February 1, 1908 playing Ehtel Reed in “The Gainesbrough Hat” and “Miser’s Nephew.” It was one of three downtown theaters in 1908 Dennison along with the Nickel Palace and the Empire. It appears to have closed in December of 1921. It was auctioned off in 1922 when the final operator declared bankruptcy.
