The 41 Outdoor Theatre was opened on May 21, 1949 with Randolph Scott in 2Canadian Pacific". It was designed by Chicago based architect Robert K. Bauerle out of architectural firm Rapp & Rapp. I remember this theatre when I was a child. My parents used to go there in the 1960’s and we would sleep in the back seat after getting worn out on the swings and slides. I remember seeing “Goldfinger” and when The Beatles were popular, my older brother insisted on seeing “Help!” and “A Hard Day’s Night”.
The original screen was huge, like a building. Later, a second screen was added. The site is now occupied by a trucking business. All that is left are the concrete pillars of the second screen.
