“Neoclassical” should be added to the styles list, since that’s pretty much the top two-thirds of the facade. Only the lower third is Art Deco, due to a renovation in the 30’s.

Sorry, slight mistake on my part-that information is from the 1958 IMPA.

The 1947 IMPA shows the Rosenbaum Theatres chain as headquartered in Florence, AL. President was Louis Rosenbaum. This chain ran the Colbert and Ritz in Sheffield as well as a few other theaters in Alabama.
