This theater closed sometime in the 50s. It was a nice building in what was then a nice, but declining area of downtown Grand Rapids. The urban renewal people got not only this theater, but a landmark in Kutsche's Hardware next door.

Status- demolished. This is now the site of the city-county administration building.
