The Bungalow Theatre was at 223 N. Main Street. A historic building survey says that the Bungalow opened in 1911, but that the building had previously been occupied by a movie house called the Dime Theatre. The building currently on the site is believed to have been built in 1921, but it might have been only a major reconstruction and enlargement of the old building.

I found the Bungalow mentioned in the September, 1911 issue of Motography (also mentioning the Orpheum) and in the January 22, 1916 issue of Moving Picture World, which said that Robert Clendinning was remodeling the house and planned to reopen it with Mutual pictures.

The oddest thing is that the historic building survey says that the Sanborn insurance map shows a movie theater at this address as late as 1939. I’ll look into this surprising news when I have more energy. It’s getting very late now.

The building currently occupying 223 N Main St, kinda looks like it could have been a theatre. Need to get a crowbar and pull back the awful aluminum siding across the front to see what’s lies behind it.
