Azalea Theatre

The Art Deco style Azalea Theatre opened in 1938 with seating listed at 725. It was located on Congress Street at Airport Boulevard. No info on owner/operator.

The theatre closed in 1956 and has been converted to an antique store. Any further information on the Azalea Theatre would be appreciated.

This is where I learned to roller skate along with my sister, brother and many cousins. I remember going to this skating rink about once a month from 1967-1970s-usually on Sunday afternoons after church.

A few years ago the lady running the antiques store told me the projection room was still mostly intact. I did not have time to check it out that day, but maybe in the future.
