I think this address is wrong.

A platte map from 1916 shows the building at 2216-2220 labeled simply “Theatre” (owned by J.M. Neuenhagen). This is the present Perlora Furniture store and definitely looks like it could have been a theater at one time.

My grandparents owned this theatre and the four surrounding buildings on Carson St, between street numbers 2219-2222. Would like to know more about the old Apollo on the South Side if anyone has input. Thank you!

It must have been a small theater, unless the Carnegie Library was built after the theater was razed. I don’t think that’s the case. At present 2215 is a small park on a bend at East Carson where traffic heads to the Birmingham Bridge.
