Dalton Theatre opening, May 28, 1948

Opened around 1949-1950. I don’t remember much about this theatre apart from the fact it was located at Arcadian Thruway.

There is only a slab left now.

This one was a neighborhood theater that ran a lot of double and triple features throughout the 1960’s and early 1970’s. In 1973, it came under management of a local circuit that focused on black-oriented films, martial arts, horror and sci-fi. Local showman Fred Williams premiered a film that he produced there that year entitled “Brother On The Run.” It operated until the end of the 70s (possibly early 80s). It was vacant by 1984.

The owner of the Dalton Theater had a huge poster collection by 1973 dating back to the early 1930’s. That collection today would be worth a ton of money as he even had the super large wall posters, that where normally posted on the side of the theaters. The Dalton was still open in 1980/81 range when I moved to Brookhaven.
