General Information:

Little is known of this theater other than it does show up on some of the master lists. I also found a mention of it in Box Office Magazine from Sept 1960 which is the "Bible" of the exhibition business. The village of Turner today has a population of 110 so it is hard to believe it could have supported it's own theater at one time but apparently it did. The Main St. address is assumed until I find out more.

Looking at the street views and aerial photography again, I would say the theater was near Main St. and North St. There is actually an old foundation near there of a former building that appears to have had a sloped floor like a theater. That isn't enough to identify it however. Comparing the 1965 aerial photo to the present day, you can see there were many buildings that have been razed. I would assume for now the theater was one of them. I will review this again later on, sometimes fresh eyes and new information reveals itself over time.
