UPDATE: It’s 2012 and the Showboat is still going strong! My wife and I attempted to spend an evening at The Showboat but we were turned away due to a sell-out. This place has turned out to be a huge hit!
Originally, this was the Delman but I remember in the 70’s the theater name was changed to the “Loews Delman,” which leads me to believe that the Loews chain bought it. I also remember it as the Maceba. I saw the band “Love & Rockets” play there. Rumor has it that it was owned by black Muslims and as the story goes, they were outraged when Slayer was booked to play. Shortly after, it was closed and demolished, as was most of the buildings around it.
