The Knickerbocker Theatre opened August 31, 1914, and stood on Market Street near N. Preston Street. The theatre was designed by William H. Lee and could seat 1,826. In 1919, the theatre was renamed the Fays Theatre, which it remained until 1948, when it received another new, albeit fairly similar (and unusual) name, the Fans Theatre. The Fans Theatre closed on August 25, 1963 while screening Vincent Price in “Diary of a Madman”, when sections of the ceiling began to fall (due to thieves on the roof trying to steal the roof exhaust fan which fell through the ceiling). It was demolished a year later.
