Hey Stumpmaster, where was this theater located?

The location is now a parking lot for the Waverly Building on the lower Southeast side of town.

Mr Stump, speaking of theaters, I noticed a marque and theater syle entrance on the side of a building that houses Nu Dimensiion auto body on MLK close to the Burger King. It has a bridge pillar about 2 feet from it so it's obvious what killed it. But do you know any history of it?

The loss of this theater hit me pretty hard. I took a field trip there with my band class to see the Oregon Junior Symphony and was blown away by the theater itself. The music was great, too.

Thanks for the memory.

The picture doesn't show the colors. I recall lots of red glass, including beads on the elephants.
