There are good areas and bad areas of Garfield Park. This is not a bad area – there’s business and new development. How are you judging danger?

J.E.O. Pridmore should be listed as architect. The interior somewhat resembled Pridmore’s Vic Theatre.

Drove by yesterday, the Admiral has re-done its entrance in a more sympathetic way – more of the terra cotta is now exposed and a lot of that EFIS stucco is gone.

Added a picture of the original seats. Yes I believe they were replaced in 1948.

Here is a 1949 picture featuring the original teaser curtain.

This looks like a pretty small theater from the street, but satellite view shows that it telescopes as it goes back. Seating capacity was 769 in 1916, not 400.
