Information for this tour was contributed by John Stewart.

The building had two apartments built into the place on the left side and right side of the theater. The building used to be used for basketball, dances and other community gatherings. A sloped floor was eventually put in but you could still see the boundary lines painted on the floor in certain areas. The spare space is where the apartments were built into.

They had a large glass beaded screen that could be rolled up when they wanted to do live stage presentations. The screen was surplus and came off a Navy carrier. The speaker was built into the wall along the left side of the screen. The last movies were shown in the mid 1980s and was still carbon arc. It was a very old booth.
