I lived in WPB for over 30 years and don’t recall this theatre on Rosemary which is where City Place is now. Any photos, anyone?

Based on small newspaper ads and its separation from other theaters in time clock listings, the Grand was once a segregated cinema.

It was, along with the Dixie. I think they both closed sometime in the sixties or early senenties.
