This theater was at 221 E Main. It appears on the 1907 map as a ‘5 cent theatre’. It did not remain operating long. By 1913, the space is a drugstore. The original structure was a two story brick commercial building, built before 1887. The theater occupied the eastern half. This building has been demolished and replaced by a cheap modern bank.
