Opened in 1910, The Fair Theatorium opened showing motion pictures. On May 23, 1912, new ownership changed the name to Forum Theatre. It appears to have closed in March 1943, but reopened on September 20, 1946. In 1953 it was converted into retail use. In 2022 it was a vacant retail unit.
The Forum Theatre was across the street from the Bell’s Opera House which primarily showed live shows though did experiment with motion pictures early and was converted to a movie theatre in the 1920’s. The Orpheum Theatre and the Palace Theatre were the other two silent era theatres in town.
