Lucas Theatre

The Lucas was taken over by the Coronet’s Alfred Sack who was doing so well with a combination of revival and art films that it decided to rebrand the Lucas as a revival house called the Encore Theater. It opened it here on November 24, 1949 with “Rebecca.” Even with the master showman Sack at the helm and Judy Garland’s mom brought in by Sack to manage the theater, they were unable to turn around the theater. The Encore was sold to G.L. and J.W. Griffin which closed after its double feature of “That Midnight Kiss” and “Dear Brat” on Oct. 10, 1951 as the rebranded theater went through two operators in less than two years' time.

Art deco masterpiece. Great marquee design. Too bad it was a failure. Inside pics would be nice. Anyone?
