Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.

The Woodmen of the World Hall was built for a social club of the same name, but was also used for community functions. [1] The Ides Theatre was later established in the Woodman of the World Hall before it moved to its own building in the 1930s.

The first silent movies were shown at the Woodmen of the World Hall in 1912 by Robert and Elberta Clark. [2]

On 1 August 1929 Bish Taylor brought "talkies" to the Ides Theatre at the Woodmen of the World Hall. [3]
