Built around 1940, this theater was located just north of Hernandez Ice House on Scenic Highway. The building is still there. Ceased operation sometime in late-1960’s. May have started up again for a short period after that, but not sure.

The Ann operated as one of the city’s prime showcases for African-American cinema in the 1970s, showing most releases for successful runs. Operation was ceased in the early 80s. The building partially houses a coin-operated laundry currently.
