Notes:

This theater was built by Harvey Callier and was eventually taken over by Dwight Cowden who at the time was Editor of the Belding Banner News.

The recent photo compared to the post card view is confusing. According to to a site called SonicGeography, the shopping center behind the bank used to be 2 blocks of downtown that were obliterated to make room for the mall. AKA Gallery

Amazingly, the old bank building featured in the postcard still exists as a bank. It is plainly seen the theater is now gone however.

The name of the owner of the Callier in later years was Dwight Cowden who at the time was Editor of the Belding Banner News.
