The Cozy operated under a different name from the 1932 opening date until it was renamed the Cozy by Fred E. Pennell in 1935. He put some improvements into the theater when he took over. The theater was managed by Julius Foder around that time also. It was open for many years until it (and 3 other adjoining buildings) were demolished in 1975. The idea was to create additional lot space for the now defunct Chevy Dealer that was across the street. The Decatur DDA Park is now on the lot of the demolished buildings. I am using the address of the building next door for mapping purposes as the park has no street address.
