I was in the Slovakia Restaurant (now closed) several times and gave it a good look-over due to the unique decor. I saw nothing that would have caused me to think it had ever been a theatre. There is nothing of the interior theatre look left that I ever saw.

I have pictures of that street from 1905 and the building looks exactly like it does as the Slovakian restaurant in your pictures. The Slovakian restaurant’s website says that the space was the old Legion Theater and an A&P prior to being a restaurant. It must have been retrofitted into a theatre in the 1930s and couldn’t have survived very long, because the A&P in Marietta was located on the other side of the square by the 1950s.

I’ll try and pop into the Marietta library in the next couple of weeks to see if the phone directories of the age are of any help.

Here is a photo of the former Legion Theater in from December 2005. It is difficult to tell what, if any of the original theatre façade remains.
