According to a Davidson architectural tour pamphlet, the 1954 fire that destroyed the theater happened with between 75 to 200 in attendance. Louis Armstrong was performing at the nearby Davison College but those attending the movie at this theater played a game of ‘chicken’ to see who could stay in the burning theater the longest. Luckily no one was injured but the building was a total loss.
