This weblog post has a bit about Coulee City’s Lee Theatre. It was in a rebuilt building formerly called Gregg Hall (apparently a community center of some sort.) The entrance was on Third Street. Another page of the weblog has a note saying that that the Lee opened on June 13, 1947. The opening of the house was also noted in the July 5 issue of Boxoffice:

“COULEE CITY, WASH.— John Lee of Ephrata has put the Lee Theatre into operation here. The house was built out of the ruins of Gregg hall, which was gutted by fire several months ago. Kenneth Knight is managing.”
