The Creston was opened at least through early 1968. That is when I saw The Vulture there. Saturday matinees for kids included a two full-length films, cartoons, and prizes. All for sixty cents. I still remember my shoes sticking to the theater floor. In the late 80's the space used for a punk dance club.
