History of the Structure

By the 1990s, this building, which formerly housed the second motion picture house in White River Jct., had devolved into a slum condition by the neglect of former landlord/owner. The Lena’s Lunch building—formerly the Crown Theater—also served as the towns bowling alleys, and “Papa Guiseppis,” an Italian sub-shop which featured a nighttime transvestite floorshow.

The building itself was torn down in 2005.
