This item from the July 8, 1927 issue of Motion Picture News might be about the Mission Theatre:

“G. C. Fasken, owner and manager of the Royal Theatre at Cashmere, Washington, last week announced that he plans to erect a 500-seat house in Wenatchee, where he will show second run attractions for 10 and 15 cents. This will be Wenatchee’s first house to be operated on a second run policy.”
An inventory of downtown Wenatchee’s historic buildings says that the building at 17 S. Mission Street was built in 1921 and originally housed a grocery store. It was converted into a theater in 1928. The Mission is known to have been on of the several movie houses in the region operated by the firm of Grieme and Fasken.
