This information is found on the site that provided Lost Memory’s photo of 7/13/07:

The Lake Theater was located at 322 East Main Street across from the Lakeland Terrace Hotel. The building housing the theater was built in the early 1920’s and originally was home to a furniture store. It was later home to the Cardwell Motor Car Company in the mid-1920’s. The building was converted for use as a movie theater and it opened as the Lakeland Theater in 1928. The name was changed to the Lake Theater in the late 1940’s. The theater closed in the early 1960’s and the building was torn down in 1970 to make way for a parking garage.
