The Maple Theater was located at 5319 Maple. It was run by R.H. Clemmons who ran the Sunset Theater. He sold the theater in favor of the Arcadia in April of 1938. It sold to legendary booker Forrest White of In-Dex Booking Services and M.K. McDaniel. It suffered a minor fire in July of 1940 that didn’t effect operations. However, White and McDaniel would build a new theater just after the War to replace the aging complex.

The Maple ended its run on April 3, 1946 with “Lady on a Train” and the New Maple Theater was launched the next night with a special invitation screening at 5206 Maple. The original Maple was up for sale in the classifieds for $18,500 by year’s end. It was purchased an converted into retail space that was still present as of the 2010s.
