This may be the remains of the Cooper 70 which was just west of 56th and O. This beautiful house was bult in the early 70's as a single screen large (800+) seat house. It was then turned into a twin and was closed the last time I knew anything about it.

The Cooper/Lincoln opened in May 1967.
According to publicity at the time of its opening, the theater sat 810, had a parking lot that could accommodate 300 vehicles, was the first 70mm-equipped venue in the city of Lincoln, and featured "multi-track theatre stereo of unusually fine fideltity." The debut attraction was "The Sound Of Music".
