A Coldwell-Banker real estate listing for this building posted in 2012 said that it was set up as a twin screen theater but that the interior improvements all belonged to the tenant. Seating capacities at that time were listed as 120 and 121 seats. The property was sold that year and the theater was apparently closed at that time.

The listing said that the building was built in 1950, but that can’t be right, as the Brockway was mentioned in the May 28, 1949 issue of Boxoffice. The item said that the Ed Rowden Theatre Service was doing the buying and booking for Tom Lucas' Brockway Theatre and Vern Shattuck’s Tahoe Theatre at Kings Beach. This is the only mention of either the Brockway or the Tahoe Theatre I’ve been able to find in the trades.
