Times Theatre Grand Opening

The Times Theatre was Robert L. Lippert’s fourth wartime built Richmond area theatre (after the Grand Theatre, Studio Theatre and Pablo Theatre) and opened on September 11, 1942 in a former garage building at 2335 Macdonald Avenue, near the busy intersection of 23rd Street and Macdonald Avenue. Vincent G. Raney was the architect who designed the conversion. The Times Theatre operated primarily as a second run house but did switch to a temporary first run policy at least once during it’s years of existence.

The Times Theatre closed permanently near the end of 1951, the third victim (behind the downtown Studio Theatre and State Theatre) of Richmond’s post war downturn economy and the ever increasing popularity of a thing called television.
