Another basic theater on the 1912 Sanborn, this theater was on the north edge of downtown in a single-story tin-clad wooden structure. This replaced a livery stable which appears on the 1905 map.

The theater was a simple rectangular building, but the rear had a rather complex arrangement of four small rooms. An 8hp engine provided power, and there was a small stage in the largest room. Strangely, this appears to be divided from the auditorium by a wall with a door in the center.

As Scammon plunged in population, almost the entire downtown disappeared. This theatre was replaced many years ago by a nondescript little house which might be from sometime around 1950.

Note that the address is a best guess for something on the fourth lot south of 4th Street on the east side of Main. The theater structure would have been just to the north of the concrete foundation visible just to the south of the house.
