Grand Opening (1940)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located at the intersection of Cedar Street and W. 4th Street. The ultra-modern neighborhood cinema first opened in 1940 with 20th-Fox’s B&W “Star Dust”. In 1976, the building was converted into a branch of the Rudy’s Tacos chain.

The building still stands, but I’m not sure if Rudy’s Tacos is still a tenant. Their website gives other Davenport locations, but not this one. The Google Maps photo might need updating.

This page of Rudy’s web site lists the location at 326 Cedar Street, so it must still be there.

In satellite view and street view, the building has an odd shape, with one corner chopped off. I’m having a hard time figuring out how the auditorium was configured in that irregular space. Has the building been altered since it ceased to be a theater?

Also, I see that Google Maps has screwed up again, putting the pin icon about four blocks too far east. As Cedar Street is clearly labeled on their map, I can’t imagine why they missed it with their pin.
