This was a neighborhood movie palace on Broadway and West 15th Avenue in Gary.

Although I never entered the theatre, as it was considered an African-American neighborhood movie house. I do remember it had a big beautiful marquee as I was always intrigued by marquee signs. They did do stage shows.

Does anyone know if the building at 2224 Broadway, Gary, now housing the Safe and Sound Senior Citizen Social Club, was once a movie theater? The front looks to be about 1940s vintage, though it might have been the result of a remodeling.

The Roosevelt Theatre was operated by the Nick Bikos Theatre Company. Nick Bikos was involved in movie exhibition it Gary at least as early as 1919 and was operating the Roosevelt at least as early as 1932.
