The Broadway Theatre is listed in the 1945 Film Daily Yearbook as open as a “Negro theater” and seating 465. The theater was located on Broadway at 13th Street, and appears to be a vacant lot today.

Any futher information on the Broadway would be appreciated.

Film Daily Yearbook’s 1930-1933 and 1949-1955 list a Little Broadway Theatre, 1312 East Broadway, East St. Louis as operating as a Negro theatre with a seating capacity of 600 (in all editions). Could this be the same theatre or one just along the street?

My copies of F.D.Y. 1941 and 1943 editions only show the Broadway Theatre with 465 seats.

I Have reference of a Delora Theatre operating as a Negro theatre in editions of Film Daily Yearbook 1949-1955. No further details given.

I have ads for the Broadway Theatre from March and April of 1908 if anyone would like to see them.
