The Iris Theatre was located in Red Lodge, Montana with F.A. Olson a longtime manager in that theatre. In the 1930’s they had Bank Nite on Saturday nights when a Moviegoer could win 40 dollars. The Iris Theatre was known as the theatre with the ‘Pick of the Pictures’. On March 14, 1934, Mr. Olson was running "Going Hollywood".

By 1941, it had been renamed Park Theatre, and it continued until closing in 1961.

Just added a photo of the former Park Theatre in it’s current incarnation as the Montana Candy Emporium. A Google search will also bring up a head on shot.

Status should be changed from “Demolished” as the building is still standing.

There are a few shots of this theater in a movie formally called Red Lodge and now called The Unattainably Perfect Gay Christmas, currently running on Amazon Prime
