The York Theatre was opened by August 1923 and operated by the John Sugar Amusement Co. Richard R.F. Lehman was the architect. In the 1930’s it was remodeled. It was closed around 1955 when it was screening religious films with a free admission. It later became a barber shop and the Artisan Organ Hall, an organ building & repair shop which occasionally had organ concerts playing to silent movies. In 1985 the former York Theatre housed the Pyong Kang Korean church, but they moved out and by October 2017, the building was vacant.
In February 2019 it was announced the building would house the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, which officially opened on November 29, 2019.
