Built in 1925 as a American Foreign Legion dance hall. It become the eponymous flagship cinema of Seven Gables Cinema, when purchased from the AFL and converted by 7Gables founder R. Finley in 1976 as the Seven Gables Theatre. It looks exactly like a small dark house from the outside, and the main venue has a romantic medieval fresco on the screen featuring castle and damsel.
