Address was 203 Emma Avenue. Description credit Springdale History. (Photo posted was 1966) “The Concord was located on the south side of Emma Avenue near the present-day parking lot where Coffee and Cars is held. The Concord opened in 1927 with seating for 650 (the seats were walnut-finished folding chairs bolted to the floor), a pipe organ, and lighted stage. The first talking motion picture to come to Springdale was shown there in 1929. The Concord had seen better days by the time this photo was taken. After standing vacant for several years, in 1968, the building became home to the Springdale Fine Arts Center, the forerunner of today’s Arts Center of the Ozarks. The Arts Center moved out in 1971 and the building was torn down soon after.”
