Opened in March 1953 by Mr. and Mrs. HC Lower on ten acres west of the city. Sold in short order (along with the Temple Theatre) to a Mr. and Mrs. Davis. Mr. Davis died within a year and she continued to operate both theaters for many years. The theater finally closed around 1980 and is now a salvage yard.
