Cameo opens again!
ORLANDO, FL — The Greater Orlando Actors Theatre has made its home in the old Cameo Theatre in Orlando’s Colonialtown neighborhood. The company is launching its season with Tennesee Williams' “A Streetcar Named Desire,” using local professional actors. An ambitious season in the new venue is planned.
The Cameo, built and opened by Florida State Theatres in 1940, was only open as a single screen movie theatre for a very few years. The building had been converted to office space, and used for that purpose for many, many years. The beautiful art deco exterior and original marquee remain.
