The Wilmar Theater was a neighborhood cinema in the Harrison West neighborhood. The theater was built in 1913 and operated until 1950.
The Wilmar Theater was built by businessman Bartley J. Gorey and shared a wall with his house. Gorey named the theater for his children William and Margaret. The theater was very small, seating just over 200. The theater was about 20 feet wide and about 100 feet long.
After ceasing to operate as a theater, the building housed the Bethany Tabernacle from 1953-83. It was abandoned in the mid-1980’s and fell into disrepair. In 1990, it was demolished to provide parking for a nearby office.
