     History
    This theatre was built in 1923 by George A Mauk (contractor : Jack Davey) after a fire ravaged the Pastime and Mexican Theatres in other parts of town. Its central position made it a perfect socializing spot. The front of the theater was often crowded with locals who exchanged the local news. A few dances and clubs reunions were held inside the building. There were also two small store areas for lease.

     Future Plans
    Demolition! On June 28th 2008, the town of Superior denied the owner's appeal to uphold the ordered demolition of a downtown building or to grant the building’s owner an extension to put together an alternate plan. It is located only one hour from Phoenix! Bring back tons of pics please:-)
