Status should be demolished. This theatre has been replaced by an addition to the US Bank building.

I was the manager here from 1987-1988 and also had helped out there in 1983-84. it had a large auditorium and my fsvorite memories were when we showed the Rocky Horror shows at halloween to sellout crowds.I believe it closed around 1989-90 when the bank bought it.
