In 2008 the Zorn was used for musical performances. Perhaps that should be an added function.

Boxoffice, Aug. 13, 1979: “Marvin Sigwing is closing the Zorn Theatre, Benkleman (sic), Neb. Sigwig had operated the theatre for the past 14 years and has sold the house to a group of local merchants. It has not been determined whether the new owners will reopen the facility as a theatre on a regular basis or as a community art-type center.”
