The 250-seat Crystal Theatre launched in September of 1911 in a converted retail building. The theatre has 2 Powers projectors and a 9x12 Mirrored curtain. Thea theatre appears to have fulfilled a 10-year lease closing in August of 1921. The theatre’s contents were sold in December of 1921 with the floor leveled and retrofitted as a tire sales shop.

The Crystal was apparently not the first movie theater to occupy these premises. The May, 1909 issue of The Nickelodeon ran this item: “Davenport, Iowa. — A new moving picture theater has been opened at 328 Harrison street.”
