Information for this tour was contributed by Daniel Wright.

This building originally had two balconies. When this operated as a movie theatre, it was called the Mac Theatre.

It had two projection rooms. The one you see in the picture is the lower one, and is the newer projection room. The original one was on the upper balcony, and the projection angle was no doubt too steep to get a good picture.

Built in 1888 now under community restoration. This building, while an opera house, the front of it also served as a courthouse and jail. You would enter through the side for access to the auditorium. Projection was installed in the 1920s. Note the windows in the auditorium.
