I’ve found a reference to the Grand Theatre in Massillon operating as early as 1923.

If the spelling of the town’s name is corrected (it takes a double “s”), this house will be able to join its companions.

The Grand stopped showing films in 1951. The Grand apparently enough then became a special events/politician house until ultimately closing its doors for the final time in 1957. The Grand then became a JCPenney in 1958.
