Looking Back to 1941: A New Theater for DeKalb

From the October 19, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"Plans for the erection of a new motion picture theatre in this city, to be located on North Third Street, are being completed by Fred Anderson of Morris, operator of the DeKalb Egyptian and DeKalb Fargo Theatres.

"It is understood that Mr. Anderson plans to bring an architect to DeKalb next week to go over the site and prepare the plans for the movie house."

I imagine the DeKalb Fargo Theatre was the one in Sycamore.  The Egyptian Theatre is in DeKalb and the one planned would have been the DeKalb Theatre.
