Previous Names: Crystal Theatre
The Crystal Theatre first opened in 1908. It had several locations before settling into a large brick building on the northeast corner of 1st Street and E. Main Street in 1920. In March 1929 William ‘Bill’ Blair purchased the Crystal Theatre and he renamed in Blair Theatre. It screened its first sound film in April 1929. It was a cultural center of the community for many years. My mother and father attended movies there and as a child I attended movies there. It was a beautiful structure with a a balcony area.
The Blair Theatre was closed in 1969 and it was demolished in 2001. The last movie I recall seeing there was "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", with Charles Laughton & Maureen O'Hara.
