Pictureland Theatre, Kokomo, 1922

The Pictureland Theatre was in operation by 1908, and remained open at least as late as 1922, when it was presenting Universal features. It was destroyed by fire in December 1923.

The building was constructed sometime before 1885, and had been a billiard room with a hall on the third floor. Sometime after it closed, it received an attractive white glazed tile facade, and is today a law office.

The address was originally 11, then the 1909 map shows it as 107, then the 1916 map has 111.

Ned Booher’s Kokomo: A Pictorial History says that Pictureland was destroyed by fire in December, 1923. The building might have survived, but the theater apparently never reopened.

That would explain the new facade, which definitely looks early ‘20s.
