Amuzu Theatre

The Amuzu Theatre opened as early as 1917 and closed on January 17, 1959 after both the Amuzu Theatre and the neighboring Boettcher’s Recreation building were both destroyed by an early morning fire, estimating $60,000 in damage and destruction.

The February 10, 1917 issue of Moving Picture World said that “Van Hooser and Layman have purchased the Amuzu theater in Fonda from Smith Bros.”

A 1958 photo of the Amuzu shows it a few doors down Main Street from the First National Bank building, which is still standing at 119 N. Main Street. The photo doesn’t show the entire block, most of which has been demolished in any case, but the theater was perhaps about halfway along it, so the address would have been approximately 109 N. Main.
