Apollo Theater

The Apollo Theater was opened in 1949. In 1987 the Apollo Theater stood closed and for sale. The front of the red brick building had been covered over with off white colored stone work. A square white marquee extended out and was trimmed with ornate metal work. Above the marquee "Apollo" was spelled out in blue script and below was a stand alone ticket booth and entrance recessed into the front of the building.

According to a blurb from NWA Media, the Apollo was recently declared unsafe by the Building Department of the City of Springdale and Springdale firefighters will not go inside the building in the event of a fire because of safety concerns.

The Apollo was built in 1949. The building is currently under renovation. And the address should be 308 W. Emma Avenue. Here is the Facebook page for the Apollo to monitor the progress.
