The 400-seat Pic Theatre opened on March 5, 1939 with Ralph Bellamy in “It Can’t Last Forever”. It was a remodeled of the Litwin building. The advertisement in the Iola Daily Register said it had a 10-cent admission price for all and was billed as “Iola’s new independent low price Theatre".
The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Weaver, said the sound equipment and upholstered seats had been moved from a theatre they previously operated in Leavenworth. The Weavers ran the theatre until Mrs. Weaver’s death in 1957 at which time Jack Hastings became manager. Mr. Hastings also operated the local drive-in.
On March 16, 1959 the Register noted that the Pic Theatre had shown its last picture last night and that the building was to be converted to a furniture store.
