The Elk Theatre was built by Douglas and Everett Connellee after their previous theatre and hotel, the New Central, burned in 1947. The Elk opened in 1949. It was operated by Douglas Connellee into the 1970s. It was later leased and operated by someone else and when the theater closed it became a factory for the manufacture of kitchen cabinets. The building was sold after Mr. Connellee’s death in 1984.

The Town of Elkton has bought the entire building including to the left and right of the movie theater. It’s use is for town business, admin offices and the police station. In April 2014 my daughter Brooke and I voted in the Town elections in the area of the prior movie theatre’s lobby. The pic located elsewhere in this section is of the box office on the right side and on the right and left sides areas for movie posters of the current feature and of coming attractions.

I recall seeing West Side Story, Old Yeller, Flipper & several other 1960's films here.  Upstairs was a balcony but I don't remember being in it.  Prior to it's June 1985 closing my uncle Eddie & I saw Rodney Dangerfield in Easy Money.  Only time we ever went to the movies together.
