Probably died when the USAF closed the big base there.

Boxoffice of October 23, 1937, said that the Fox Strand Theatre at Salina was being extensively remodeled and expanded. The January 15, 1938, issue said that Fox Midwest would open the Strand within 30 days. The project had cost $35,000, and the expanded theater would seat 750. The original seating capacity was not mentioned.

A house called Shanberg’s Strand Theatre, Salina, Kas., was listed as one of the theaters showing the Pathe release “Play Ball” in an ad in The Reel Journal of August 8, 1925. This was most likely the same Strand Theatre that Fox Midwest later acquired.
