Information for this tour was contributed by Konrad Schiecke.

The Olympic Theatre contained 1426 seats. It opened in 1939 and ran movies through the 1980s. The theater is located on the second floor of the building. After the movies stopped, there were proposals to make it a live show house, but that has met with resistance from city hall.
