Park Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Park Theatre opened in 1935 with seating listed at 500. It was operated by Associated Amusement Co. and then Franklin Amusements, and finally by Frank and Woempner until it cloised.

The theatre closed in 1961 and was later demolished. There is an empty lot where the theatre once stood. Any further info on the Park Theatre would be appreciated.

Is 721 10th Street South the confirmed address of the 1935 Park Theatre?, There was a New Park Theatre opened in 1913 at 822-825 10th Street South, a block away from this house. There was a photo of it in the July 12, 1913, issue of The Moving Picture World. Google street view shows what looks like the same building still standing, though it gives the approximate address as 884 10th Street South. Theater-style exit doors can be seen on the back of the building, which abuts East 14th Street.

From the aerial view, it looks as though County Road 33 might once have ended at 10th Street, or maybe ran straight south to end at Grant Street, but was later cut diagonally through the 700 block to connect with Park Avenue South. If the Park Theatre moved to a new building in the 700 block of 10th Street in 1935, that building might have been demolished in the 1960s if such a road project was carried out then.
