The newer of the two theaters was the Romeo Theatre at 141 S. Main Street. Al Johnson's slide of the Romeo was also shot in August 1948 and the film "Winter Meeting" starring Bette Davis and James Davis, is shown on the marquee. The color image shows a fairly new building in "art moderne" style with a beautiful two-tone blue color scheme. The Romeo Theatre is one of just a handful of Johnson projects that deviated from his trademark standard cream and red colors. The Garrison Chevrolet used car lot can be seen to the left of the theater, and a garage can be seen to the right. Unfortunately, the Romeo Theatre building appears to have been been razed and replaced by a smaller one-story building housing the People Driven Credit Union - at least according to Google Maps.
