The original address was 1235 Washington Avenue. On the corner of 13th street on the same block the Brandts also ran a tiny theater named the Plaza Art which closed and is now an Irish Pub.
This theater I believe is still owned by the Brandts. It has been a long series of somewhat popular nightclubs. The murals were covered/painted over when it was converted into a nightclub. While it was still a movie theater, vaudeville shows were presented every winter. Even as audiences for films declined, these shows often sold out. The theater held about 1350 movie patrons. I believe when it first opened it was called the “French Casino”.
