  A7 - The Grand Theatre

The Grand Theatre - 525 North- 2nd St.

In 1914, Herman Schmidt built this theater, naming it The Grand Theatre. For twenty years silent films were shown. When talking pictures were invented, the business was sold to Victor Urbane who immediately installed new equipment in order to show the new talking pictures. In 1939, Urbane sold his interest to Bernard Temborus who completely remodeled the theater and changed the name of the theatre to the Avon Theatre. On January 1, 1972, Temborus sold the business to Allen and Jean Keith. After seven years of ownership, in June, 1979, the Keiths sold the theatre to Mr. and Mrs. Allan Thoele and Mr. and Mrs. Steven Gramann. Clinton County Showcase is presently located here, using the theater for entertainment specials, musicals and variety shows.
