This small theatre opened on February 20, 1950, located in the West Ashley area of Charleston. It was designed by local architect Augustus E. Constantine.

After closing it was converted to retail use, and in 2011, it became a restaurant.

Sad loss. I used to walk there, all the way from downtown Charleston, to see first-run films.

It was just an ordinary place, but with dowdy charm. For the special effect films, you went to the Ultravision—THAT was a theater.

Was in here last week and the theater" guts" are still in place. Floor ,stage and empty projection booth.Very hard to reopen as a theater with all the new laws for bathrooms and lobby space.

Too bad that this building cannot be converted back to a theater. I believe that the space is currently available according to a commercial real estate listings site. I know that in recent years it was used for a costume shop and most recently as a women’s consignment shop. With all of the “artsy” revitalization taking place in this area of Charleston, now would seem the perfect time to take it back to a theater.

It’s now an average restaurant, within a really loud space.
