Open at least from 1949 into the 1950’s, this was an African-American theater. The theater was about two storefronts wide and had a V shaped marquee with the letters ‘DUNBAR’ set on the top of the marquee. To the left of the theater was the Bird-Land Fantasy Barber Shop, next was the Palace Resturant with Fountain Service and on the corner Barr Brds. Everything has been torn down and a giant U.S. Post Office now covers the entire block.
The theater was named after the Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906) of Dayton, Ohio, an African-American poet, novelist, and playwright.
