David and Noelle Soren’s list of know Boller Brothers theaters lists a 1917 project by the Bollers in Junction City, but it is listed as the Columbia Theatre.

The list also includes the Junction Theatre, but that is listed as a later aka for the Uptown Theatre that opened in 1928. It also lists Dickinson as another aka for the Uptown/Junction.

I’ve been unable to find an address for the Columbia Theatre, but the September 1, 1919, Daily Union has an ad for the house which includes a drawing (here, but I don’t have an account with Newspapers.com, so it isn’t enlarged.) Wherever it was, it looks like it was a corner location.
