Here is a colorized photo of the Wilt Theatre taken around 1919. The Wilt was in operation by 1918, as it was mentioned in The Moving Picture World that year. It might have opened in 1917, when the March issue of Electrical Record and Buyer’s Reference ran an item listing several theaters recently wired by contractor W. G. Dunseath of Irwin, Pennsylvania, which included a theater for R. A. Wilt in Ligonier. The list specified that Dunseath’s work for a Lyric Theatre in Irwin had been a rewiring job, but as it didn’t specify rewiring for any of the other theaters on the list perhaps it can be assumed that they were all new houses.

Functions are wrong. The bowling alley used to be a car dealership. The theater was to the east. 203 is now part of 201, a dull little fake colonial bank. From the side you can see that the auditorium is now offices facing the parking lot.
