The address for this building has been 159 S Main for years. In the middle 1970’s until the early 1980’s this was Steven’s Stationers (where I worked while attending college at ISU). It was obvious from the inside (and out) that this had been a theater.

It was at 151 S Main (also shown in some directories at 147 S Main) … but it was NOT next to the Chief. The Chief was on N Main. The parking lot shown in the photo above is where the Orpheum was. The building to the left (south) was a theater too. It was, for many years during the 1970’s and 80’s, Steven’s Stationers where I worked while going to college. I believe it was the Capitol Theater.
