The Pic Theatre launched here by W.A. Weaver on March 5, 1939 as a sub-run discount house with Ralph Bellamy in “It Can’t Last Forever” supported by The Three Stooges short, “Grips, Grunts and Groans,” a cartoon, and two more short subjects. The theatre closed at the end of a 20-year lease on March 16, 1959 with a double-feature of Rhonda Fleming in “Odonga” and Glenn Ford in “3:10 to Yuma.” Future bookings were moved to the 54 Drive-In.

Here is a webpage about the furniture store that incorporated the space that once was the Pic; part of the theater’s entrance can be seen in one of the B&W pictures, and there is a modern day photo of the frontage of the furniture store that includes the Pic premises.
