The address is 16787 Main Street.

It looks like the remodel was done in the late 1980s:

The status should be closed. It’s still the library.

Not to be repetitive, but the currrent function is the same as above.

Here is an ad that was Boxoffice magazine in September 1963:

Galesville was director/writer Nicholas Ray’s home town. He probably got some of his interest in films by attending this theater, I would imagine.

Seating for the Gale Theatre was 422.
