Previous Names: Casino Theatre
The Casino Theatre opened on April 8, 1917 with vaudeville and films. It prospered until the advent of sound and struggled through the depression with low-cost late-run motion picture attractions.
Following a remodel in 1941, it reopened as the Downtown Theatre in January 1, 1942, with double features which changed daily, and a nightly Spin-O-Win game. Television brought an end to this policy in 1950, and it survived two more years with burlesque before finally shutting down in September 1952. In 1953, the Downtown Theatre met the wrecking ball.
