I was asked to help check out this location for a potential buyer (NOT the XXX operator) probably about 1972. It's hard for me to believe that anyone could make it workable after what I saw. The screen end had been flooded, being right by the lake, and the floors were moldy and slippery. The projection booth was a wreck. I seen to remember that the equipment was rusty from all the humidity in the building.

I had seen enough. I told the man to forget it.

I found this interesting YouTube documentary on the Cub that was done by Bear Lake High School students. In this short video, they talk about its tenure of being an adult theater in the 1970''s with old photos and even an interview with its former owner. http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=OqvIGa9f81gOne probable mistake, though: the girl narrating the video claims that a flower shop currently occupies its space.

However, I looked at Google Maps and I think the Farm Bureau Insurance building next door resembled more like a theater than the dinky little flower shop. I could be right, I could be wrong.
