Guild Theater

The Premier Theater dates back to around 1910. It was remodelled in 1932 to the plans of architect William G. Upham and reopened as the Guild Theater. In 1938 a further remodeling was carried out to the plans of architect Harry J. Korslund. It closed around 1952. For several decades it has operated as a high-end restaurant.
