This Quonset Hut style movie theatre was a theatre Blacks could attend and have a decent seat. There were other Negro theatres operating in Augusta in the late-1940’s (a time when Quonset style theatres were being built), for which no address’s are given, one being the Ritz Theatre which was open 1945-1948).
This theatre opened as the Harlem Theatre in 1948 and by 1952, had been renamed the Show Palace Theatre (aka Showcase Theatre), it closed in 1955.
It is still standing today as a church.
