This Cleveland west side theater closed in the late 1940’s or maybe 1950. After that the lobby was used as a auto repair shop, but the theater marquee and vertical were still in place. If you know anything about this theater please post.

I believe the auto shop is still there today, although the building today looks like nothing closely resembling a theatre.

I drove by that address…apparently the original theatre building was demolished and replaced by a garage-when this was done I don’t know offhand. I know that an auto repair shop and a used car lot are at West 85th and Lorain Ave. now.

And, it was a costume shop for a short time in the late 50’s, early 60’s.
