The first theater in Delphos was located at 405 N. Main St., the current site of The Delphos Herald. In 1912, the structure, known at the Air Dome Theatre, was showing the short silent drama film “Blind Love,” starring Blanche Sweet and Harry Hyde; “Mr. Swell in the Country”; and “Badgers.” The gentlemen waiting for the doors to open were, from left, Steve Schleeter, Frank Linder and Fred Keutsch. The Delphos Printing and Publishing Co. purchased the lot in July 1912 and started work on The Herald building that fall.
