Previously operated by: Kerasotes Theatres
Architects: J. Fletcher Lankton
The Crest Theatre was opened in 1939. It was designed by local architect J. Fletcher Lankton in a Streamline Moderne/Art Deco style. It was operated by Springfield based Kerasotes Theatres and the Crest Theatre was similar to their Beverly Theatre and Varsity Theatre, both in Peoria, IL and the Esquire Theatre in Springfield, IL.
The Crest Theatre was closed around 1969 and it was converted into Kimberly’s Furniture store which operated a short time. It was demolished and Sandy’s/Hardee’s Restaurant was built on the site. This too has since been demolished and the site is now occupied by a gas station.
