Yes, the Polonia Theatre is listed at 405-407 Maryland from 1915 to 1921, but I don’t know if that was a different building exactly a block away, or if Wilmington simply renumbered its blocks in 1921.

Maryland Avenue (aka Delaware 4) maps properly at Google Maps. The map for our page probably needs to be reset with the correct zip code, which is 19804.

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.
