Claude & Starck, 1922

A novel combination of city hall and movie theater. Built for $130,000, the building is still used for its original functions. Though some remodeling has taken place, the second floor meeting room remains essentially intact. The interior of the theater has a classical revival theme; in addition to showing first-run movies, it is also the home of the Lancaster Community Players theater group.
