The Columbia Theatre was located on Main Street and opened on December 24, 1919. The Columbia Theatre had a different seating arrangement than most theatres. Upon entering patrons walked up a slight incline to their seats which faced the screen which was in the back of the theatre. By 1941, it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. It was closed on June 19, 1954. It reopened part time screening on 4 nights a week (Friday thru Sunday) and was still opened in December 1957.
Following closure the front lobby was being used as a youth center and some theatre seats remain. A church own the building and they presented concerts in the auditorium. By 2021 it was in use as a live theatre.
Perhaps the name Columbia was a theatre chain since Columbia Theatres are also listed as having been in Sharon and Erie, PA.
