I guess running the remake of “3:10 to Yuma” could have caused chaos.

Indeed. I’ve probably learned more from CT, than I did in school.

By chaos I meant an erronious movie time, further confused by a movie of the same name as the theater.
Maybe the newspaper ad anyway.

No website. Movie showtimes are listed on their Facebook page or by phone.

The Yuma Theatre opened its doors on June 24, 1938 with Mickey Rooney in “Lord Jeff” along with Disney’s Mickey Mouse in “Mickey’s Trailer”, Fitzpatrick’s Traveltalks' “Czechoslovakia on Parade”, and a Universal Newsreel (all of these were listed on article and not on the grand opening ad).

The Yuma Theatre is first owned by J.N. Hughes and the husband-and-wife team of Mr. and Mrs. J.K. Powell. The opening of the Yuma Theatre caused a permanent closure to the nearby Gem Theatre also in Yuma.

In 1965, the Yuma Theatre closed for three months following interior remodeling which include a new concession stand and ticket booth.

Throughout its first 50 years of operation, the Yuma Theatre ran a grand total of nearly 6,000 movies (including special showings and children’s matinees) between 1938 and 1988, and still going strong.
