General Information:

The Our Theatre was operating prior to 1941. It was operated by Everett & Gertie Perrin, who sold it to Larry Raymond in the early-1960s. It was then converted to a furniture store, but later burned down. By 1975, the site was occupied by a Ben Franklin (later V&S Variety) store, which closed around 1996. Ace Hardware moved into the former V&S building in 2002.

There was a second theatre in Standish called the Temple, which was around the corner from the Our on M-61, to the east. I heard it was there in the 1950s. It was the earlier theatre; my 1931 FILM DAILY YEARBOOK lists it alone.

The Our was owned by Everett & Gertie Perrin. They sold it in the early 1960s to Larry Raymond, who converted it to a furniture store. The furniture store burned down later, and a V & S Variety store was built on the site. The V & S store became an Ace Hardware around 2002.
