Olympian Theatre

Opened as the Mack Theatre on November 24, 1922. The architect was George B. Purvis. It was most likely named after it’s builder and first manager, Mack J. Davis. By 1949, the name had been changed to the Olympian Theatre and it was operated by Sterling Theaters, Inc. The site is currently a parking lot below street level.

All that remains of the Olympian Theatre is part of the wall the theatre building shared with the building to the south.
