Another Lakeview area theatre, located on Robert E. Lee Boulevard in a small shopping center many simply referred to as the Robert E. Lee center.(also had a Canal Villere grocery store, popular Chinese Restaurant China Rose, and a Walgreens). The theatre opened in 1969.
It is a large glass facade building with a grand elegant lobby setting reminiscent of a grand riverboat…very elegant in a 1970’s manner. Had a great sign above the building that flashed Robert E. Lee, in riverboat style letters. Always remained a large single screen house which served a mostly upscale suburban clientele.
The Robert E. Lee Theatre closed in 1991, its last operators were General Cinema Theatres. It was demolished in August 2009.
