The Coronado Theater was opened on September 6, 1931 with Walter Houston in “The Star Witness”. C.J. Wittler bought the Coronado Theater from John Preston in March 1958, according to an item in Boxoffice magazine at that time. It was still open in 1969 but had closed by 1977. By 2012 it was in use as Humphrey Physical Therapy.

Grand opening ad from September 6, 1931 for the Coronado Theatre posted with Walter Huston in “The Star Witness.” A nice note to owner Elizabeth Lewejohn from architects Emil Christensen and John Nyquist - the Columbus, Nebraska based architects of the Coronodo Theatre - is posted from 1931 in photos.

On December 12, 1954, the theatre installed widescreen projection to present CinemaScope films beginning with “Three Coins in the Fountain.” The Theatre was still operating in 1969 but was converted for an agribusiness location in 1977.
