The Roosevelt Theater was one of the larger neighborhood houses. The theater opened in 1924 seating 1,200. Eleven years later with a packed house the Roosevelt Theatre was lost to a huge fire on June 25, 1935, fortunately there was no life lost.

The front section of the building remains today, with a plaque on the facade stating ‘Roosevelt Theatre – 1923.

The building is still there, minus the marquee. You can still read “Roosevelt Theater” engraved in the stone on the upper front of the building.
