Information for this tour was contributed by Daniel Gibbs.

This was the big theatre of its neighborhood until the big State was built two blocks west. Named for a popular song of the day about an Indian maiden, it opened in 1914 and closed for good in 1960. Despite being outdone by the bigger and nicer State, it always drew a good crowd and is still remembered fondly. The building is still standing, although it's been badly mutilated for service as a Rite Aid drugstore. The facade is barely recognizable, but a walk down the side street (Patterson Park Ave.) reveals the neo-Georgian brickwork of the old theatre.
