A Perham icon is in new hands. Last week, ownership of the Comet Theater passed from Pam Wasche Wilson and her husband Scott Wilson to Dave Quincer. The Comet was originally built in the late 1920s as a JC Penney store, but was converted into a movie theater in 1938. When the theater was slated to close in 1971, Joe Wasche Sr. and wife Delores took over for a week. After a successful trial run, Joe and Delores bought the theater, where it's stayed in the family ever since.
