The Fairy Theatre opened on Easton Avenue around 1909 or 1910. It was located on the outskirts of the busy Wellston Loop shopping center just four buildings east of the Victory Theatre. The theatre was not as elaborate as either the Victory Theatre or the Wellson Theatre but was built with a light Moorish style.
One unique item of the Fairy Theatre is that is had a box office located on each side of the building. When there were large crowds the box office on the west side was opened so that the lines would stretch in front of the Victory Theatre just four doors down causing havoc with the patrons trying to get in the Victory Theatre.
The theatre had a small balcony of 202 seats and the remaing on the main level. There were four columns on the east and west walls of the auditorium with lighting down the columns from the ceiling. Most of the color inside the theatre was a deep red and brown. The theatre closed August 26, 1951. It has operated as an auto repair shop for many years.
