This was in Boxoffice, June 1950:

Dock Edge has closed his Pike Theatre in Claymont, Del. because of loss of business resulting from reconstruction of Route 13.

Where exactly at that intersection was it? Darley Inn and the Claymont Stone School are both historic buildings so it wouldn’t have been on those corners. And I think Archmere’s been around awhile. Was it where the Food Lion is now? Although that’s the Darley Road side of Phila Pike, not the Myrtle.

I can’t imagine it lost business as early as 1950. It was right near Brookview Apartments, which was a huge complex in walking distance of the theater.

An Exxon service station now stands where the Pike Theatre once stood.

Does anyone have any photos? Also, who the architect was and in what style, and the dates it opened and closed? Please share. Thanks!
