Art Theatre

The McDonough Theatre was opened on October 29, 1913. It was renamed Classique Theatre in 1916, and with a seating capacity for 550, it operated under this name until 1928. Alterations were carried out in 1929 to the plans of architect William C. Winters.

It was reopened in 1931 as the Art Theatre, which closed in 1945.

Judging from the Google Maps satellite and street views, the building certainly looks as though it could have been a neighborhood movie theater before becoming the Beulah Church of God in Christ Jesus Inc. (one of the most entertaining church names ever.)

The building looks like it could be a neighborhood size theatre and also the location to that intersection.

That’s a good link. I use it on many addresses to see the buildings and neighborhoods for theatres.
