It opened as the Pix and closed in the mid- to late-1940s. Then the St. Helens Theater, down the street next to the big hotel of the same name, folded in the early 1950s (converted to drug store) and the Pix was renovated and reopened as the Chehalis. The marquee is from the old St. Helens, which also had a vertical sign so the name wasn't on the marquee. The letters CHEHALIS were added atop the marquee when it was moved to the old Pix. They eventually became unstable and were removed.
