Opened as the Legion Theatre in 1910 and later renamed the Wright Theatre. Seating was given at 400. The architect for the Legion Theatre was Henry Hengels.

The Wright Theatre was closed in 1944 and later demolished. The interstate runs through where the theatre once stood.

Any further information on the Wright Theatre would be appreciated.

If the interstate took out the area on which the Wright stood, it would be WEST Wright street.

I do stand corrected, the Wright was on the corner of EAST Wright and N Fratney.
