Previous Names: Bluebird Theatre, Ramona Theatre, Teatro Granada
The Bluebird Theatre opened in 1921 with seating for 600. By 1930 it had been re-named Ramona Theatre. On May 27, 1938, the facility’s name was changed to Teatro Granada and it instituted a program of second run Spanish language films. After another name change, the Lido Theatre was sold to Dr. Alvin A. Childs in 1951.
Rechristened as the Faith Temple Church of God in Christ, Dr. Childs' Pentecostal church hosted the funeral service of Malcolm X on February 27, 1965. In 1974, the house of worship was yet again renamed, this time as the Childs Memorial Temple, and it continued to serve the Sugar Hill community. It was demolished in 2020.
