Built by Michael Cianciolo, Sr. and opened in 1929 on an oddly shaped pointed lot on Jackson Avenue and N. Watkins Street. The Rosemary Theatre had a ‘colored’ balcony with a side entrance. Its neon display had no rival among the neighbourhood theatres until the Crosstown Theatre was built, and it was a beloved and successful theatre.
The Rosemary Theatre was closed March 28, 1965 with Gregory Peck in “Behold a Pale Horse” & Warren Beatty in “Lilith”. It was demolished. It was named after the oldest of the Cianciolo sisters. Sometimes confused with the Rosewood Theatre, they were two entirely different buildings with different histories.
