The Navaway Theatre’s premier feature was “Man of Conquest” with Richard Dix and Joan Fontaine.

It looks like the street was corrected but the architect still needs to be added.

This theater was not demolished in 76.. I remember it standing until about 1983. It was in real bad shape. Hurricane Alicia was the final nail in the coffin. It was demolished not long after as it was heavily damaged from the storm

Wasn’t there another theater closer to downtown called the Navigation or the Canal?
