The Lakeview Theatre, located on Jefferson Avenue at Francis, was owned by Mr. and Mrs. R.J. Francis. Mr. Francis also sold real estate, and he named the streets Francis, Jewell, and Raymond after his family. In the 1930s, a ticket for a show cost 6 cents. Bill Spanswich and later Harry Kraus worked as projectionists. If the kids jumped around and banged the seats, Mrs. Francis or Mrs. Kelhoffer, the candy seller, would stop the movie, turn on the lights, and the kids were reminded to "shape up or ship out". The theatre closed in the 1950s.
