There may have been a fire there, but the building has not been demolished. It is still there and houses a retail store. If you go around to the alley in the back you can see the addition that was built to house the speaker when sound was added. It never had a stage and there was no room behind the screen for a speaker, therefore the small bump out on the back.

This building was an older building that was converted into a theater fairly early on. After a period as a theater it was closed and then reopened in the 1920’s/30’s as the Crystal Restaurant. Afterwards it was reopened again as the Midway Theater, which was one of the first theater’s in Allentown to be air conditioned.
