The three story facade is all white glazed terra cotta with blue accents and a red tile roof. Two dormers with very steeply pitched roofs protrude all the way to ground level. A unique building. It opened as the American Theatre in 1917, and an organ was installed in 1922. In 1939 the interior was remodeled in a Streamline Moderne style to the plans of architect Bjarne H. Moe and it was operated by Midstate Amusement Corp.
In 1990 Bon-Macy’s renovated it as as an addition to their store. Apparently the seats are still there under a false floor. The vertical is gone, but the advertisement on the back wall has been restored.
