I believe Chris is right. The building next door to the theater in both photos has a distinctive Romanesque triple arch on the upper floor.

I think the Co-Ed and the Coyote are one in the same. I posted a photo of the Co-Ed and they look like the same building to me.

Wow! Real cool picture of the theatre from back in 1985. Just drove through this town today and saw the theatre. Would never have thought it was as old as it is. I wish they would keep these historic theatres the way they were originally. At least it is still operating. Anyone have pics of the inside? Is that all remodeled also?

Maybe Liebenberg & Kaplan did some remodeling work on the building in 1939. Unfortunately the finding aid for the University of Minnesota’s collection doesn’t give details about the projects, only names, dates, building types, and locations.

The Coyote Theatre at Vermillion is listed as a 1939 design in the archives of the architectural firm of Liebenberg & Kaplan.

A November 25, 1939, Boxoffice item indicates that at that time the March circuit consisted of six theaters in three towns: The March and Coyote at Vermillion; the Elite and Royal at LeMars, Iowa; and the Crystal and Gay at Wayne, Nebraska.
