This is from Boxoffice magazine in March 1958:

WARREN, ILL.-Herman Krippendorf, who recently bought the closed Warren Theatre from the Marchesi brothers, has re-opened the house on a six nights a week policy, the theatre not operating on Tuesdays.

The Marchesi brothers had operated the Warren for 20 years prior to closing it last November when attendance dwindled. Krippendorf was encouraged to take over the theatre by local citizens assuring him of support through regular attendance. The former owners are helping Krippendorf in the booking of film and other operating procedures in the early weeks of his tenure.
