Yes, a historic movie theater was demolished to be replaced with open space.

The Historical Society of Delaware decided to demolish the Arcadia, but they decided to landscape the site and the Delaware History Museum is next to the Arcadia site in a former Woolworth’s. The Delaware History Museum was recently reopened after a renovation.

The site was bought by the Historical Society of Delaware. They had it demolished in 1965.

Can anyone give me info on the Cinemart on Gov Prinz? I can’t find any info anywhere, but, I stop to look at it every time I’m in the area. What a mystery. The only thing I can tell is that I was built in the 60’s due to the chandelier and font on the front sign.
