When the Glen Brothers Piano Company opened its new store in 1923, the third floor included a 200-seat recital space named Chickering Hall. The acoustics were described as “absolutely perfect.” In 1975 the building was remodeled into the Washington Fair, a mall with a dozen specialty shops. The stage on the third floor became the Laughing Gypsy Comedy Theatre and later the Famous Films Theatre.
The Ranch Drive-In, located at 7680 West 2400 South, opened sometime before 1958 and closed between the summers of 1960 and 1961. Even though the theater closed over 40 years ago, the Ranch Drive-In has not been built over. The projection and snack bar buildings are still standing and location of the screen tower can still be seen from aerial photos.
