The Wadsworth Theater opened before 1930 and was renamed  the Dixie Theatre between 1945 and 1950.  The theater closed after 1999. 
By 2005 the building was known as the Main Street Theater and Ballroom, even though the auditorium was being used as a warehouse. The lobby housed a retail shop and office space for a radio or television station. The upper floor was used as a ballroom.
