After the Gem Theatre closed in downtown Winter Garden, Florida in 1948, Collie Biggers decided to construct a theatre in the city for African-American patrons. The Annex Theatre was constructed and opened in 1950 on Klondike Street in East Winter Garden.
Resembling a large quonset hut on the outside, it seated about 300 and had no concessions. The projection equipment from the closed Gem Theatre’s booth was moved to the Annex Theatre. By 1956 it was operated by Floyd Theaters. The Annex Theatre closed in 1963, and the building is now owned by Orange County and is the site of the Maxey Community Center.
