The Temple was a 2nd floor theatre. The ground floor lobby area was converted to retail space many years ago. The 2nd floor has remained unused ever since. I have to wonder if the theatre is still up there?

The Temple is supposed to be auctioned off on Sat. October 20 according to Blum’s website. The open houses have past… I would have loved to take a look…

Its still there. The lower lobby was converted into retail but the upstairs lobby area is still intact, as well as some of the aud. The seats are gone and where the curtain was has been completely cinderblocked, but most of the ornamental stuff was left. There are some seats along the walls of the upstairs lobby area, but it doesnt look like anything is being done with this unfortunately.

Most theatres called “Temple” are associated with fraternal organizations such as the Freemasons, Shriners, Scottish Rite, Elks or Moose. Was the top floor a lodge?
