Drove by on Wednesday. The area has a lot of new construction and appears to be prospering as much as is possible in this economy.

This theater, unlike all others in the area, was fully integrated as both black and white patrons could sit anywhere. The Happyland (live theater?) and Gem had a divider down the center of the auditorium to separate the races.

A photo can be found in the “Shaw Historic District” pamphlet published by the DC Historic Preservation Office in 2008. Caption states that patronage was 4500 per week in 1927.

Refer to the “mini debate” posted above in June 2005.

The debate is resolved. The linked photo is currently on display in the Smithsonian American History museum as part of the “Picturing the Promise” exhibition. The caption states that the patrons were indeed protesting the treatment of african americans in the movie Gone with the Wind.

The shopping center was built in 1966.

The following is extracted from http://voger.blogspot.com/2006_04_01_archive.html:

“My late friend was the manager of the CollegeTown Cinema, a two-screen theater that showed second-run movies for a ONE DOLLAR ADMISSION. That’s right, a lousy buck! Even in the ‘70s, that was a crazy bargain. Some of the movies I recall seeing there: "Audrey Rose,” “Smokey and the Bandit,” “Interiors,” “Starting Over,” “The Goodbye Girl,” “Thunder and Lightning.” "

I was at the Rock recently for an afternoon event. You can get a good clear elevated view of the Paramount from inside the glass walled concourse.

No mention of the theatre in this article but you can see the marquee in the top photo. I’m glad they are considering revitalizing this street. It is not vibrant like the rest of the town is.

Which of the screens have digital projection? I’ve been trying to locate a digital screen online directory without success. Yahoo, Fandango, etc don’t even do a good job of listing digital screens.
