General Information:

This little town had theaters going back to the early 1920's. There was the Princess in 1925 and eventually the Riviera was set up. I am not sure if they occupied the same building or not. I am assuming the street was Main given the set up of the town. The mentions in the newspapers end in the late 1930's. I have driven through Tekonsha many times and I never thought a town that small could support a theater. No buildings still standing are obvious locations.
