St. Joseph Memory Lane has a clipping from the March 8, 1950 issue of the St. Joseph News-Press with a photo of the demolition of the Crystal Theatre, then underway. The caption says the house opened on October 30, 1906 as the Curd Theatre, owned by Isaac Curd. It was leased to the Crystal vaudeville circuit, who renamed it the Crystal Theatre. The Crystal circuit, later taken over by Alexander Pantages, operated a chain of ten-cent theaters in Colorado and Missouri.
