The theatre was demolished years ago. The building which so many believe was the theatre is/was immediately to the north of the theatre. The parking lot to the right of the mistaken theatre is the site of the theatre building.

And what year did the Rogers family move to Overland? The question is asked as the description says the theatre closed in 1957 but my research shows it closing in 1953. Likewise, the description says the theatre opened in 1932 but my research says 1928.

From my friend Richard Rogers-
When my family moved to 2336 Brown Rd in Overland, The Overland Theatre must have been closed only about 1 year. Being 11 years old I often rode my bike into Overland’s neat little downtown shopping district. On the very first trip I spied the closed theatre and stopped to look into the lobby through the glass of the locked doors. On one such trip I pushed the door and it opened. I walked into the ticket lobby and the inner concession lobby looking around. Not much to see except that the place was filthy and the floor littered with bits and pieces of 35MM film, I would have liked to check out the auditorium but it was pitcvh dark and I didn’t have a flashlight. The next time I brought a flashlight but never found one of the doors unlocked.
