Just came back from Dayton yesterday and she’s gone. By the looks of it, the roof finally collapsed by May of 2012 and they hauled her off by October 2013.

Wyoming – Southwest corner of Wyoming Street and Gunkel Avenue (1914-29): The Wyoming was one of the most successful silent film theaters in the city. The Wyoming was erected by Albert Staehlin, a baker by trade, in 1914. A year later real estate investor Gus. G. Kinzeler bought the theater. Kinzeler, one-time owner of Funland Theater on Valley Street, did quite well during the decade he owned the theater. When attendance began to decline, Kinzeler sold his interest in the Wyoming to Samuel D. Crumbaugh in 1925.

I just got back from the Dayton Amateur Radio Convention. This is what I saw. There is graffiti now in a light beige on the dark brown painted wood covering/protecting the front.
