The building was one story and when a second story was added the theatre was on the second floor. This was in about 1915 and was open till 1925.

Gray & Holt Dry Goods, Inc., founded in 1934 is now in the building. They use orginal silent movie chairs for seats to sit on when trying on shoes and have on display original silent movie posters that were discovered in the attic several years ago.

Thanks Bob, probably won’t be able to add much more.

I’ve been in this store, they have lots of neat stuff and it you need a T shirt this is the place to go!

CT can always use more photos, old and new, both inside and out, and more info.
