The Warner Theatre was the largest and most lavish in the State of Delaware. It opened on February 8, 1939.

It closed in December 1976 and in the summer of 1977 it was announced that the auditorium section of the building would be demolished and turned into a parking lot.

Can anyone give me info on the Cinemart on Gov Prinz? I can’t find any info anywhere, but, I stop to look at it every time I’m in the area. What a mystery. The only thing I can tell is that I was built in the 60’s due to the chandelier and font on the front sign.

In the summer of 1973, Blue Oyster Cult and Peter Frampton played a live concert here because all the venues in Philly were booked. I was sitting in for the manager that week, and Frampton used my office for a dressing room. Two weeks later we held Wilmington’s first All Night Movie Horrorthon, including Night of the Living Dead and 3 other horror films. Started at midnight and lasted all night. But the biggest hit we had was when Tom Laughlin rented the theatre for his four-wall reissue of BILLY JACK which sold out almost every show. What a summer that was!
