The Grand Theatre, built in 1916, was said to hold about 700 patrons at a time. It held two “shows” a day, often of mixed styles. They showed movies and live productions both, including live music. 1,500 people, both community members and visitors coming from out of town, arrived at the reception of the theatre. It was built for only $30,000, a very thrifty cost for a full-fledged theatre.
