General Information:

This theater was built in the early 1900's as the Star. In the 20's the name was changed to the Berrien Theatre. By 1930, "talkies" were installed.

In 1936, the theater was remodeled and the name was changed to the Our Theatre. A man from Hamilton, Ohio purchased the theater in 1939 only to turn around and sue the previous owner for misrepresenting the revenue potential of the house.

Apparently that suit failed as the Hamilton man sold the theater to Mr. Spadafore of Fremont in 1942. As mentioned in the article below, the house showed foreign language features and porn over the years. The name change to the Berry Theatre seems to have occurred in the 1940's

There have been efforts to remodel the theater since the mid 2000's but I am not seeing anything beyond that which would indicate if those efforts were successful. The recent street view photo indicates some cosmetic improvements to the exterior.
