This was one of the first theaters in town. The building was very old, and dated to before 1883. The theater was the northernmost storefront in a two story brick building. The 1902 map shows the Daily Press and print shop operating there, but the August 1908 map shows the theater. The building on the corner, and at least part of the building containing the theater were demolished around 1918 for the bank building which is still on the corner. The theater probably would have been either right next door to the bank or one door further north. It’s now a parking lot.
