Opened in the 1910’s, the Annetta Theatre seated 800, and was located on S. Laramie Avenue (then known as 52nd Avenue) near 23rd Place. It closed in 1951 and a Salvation Army community center now operates from the building.

Wasn’t this theater called The Annetta, like the nearby ‘20s hotel?

The theatre building is actually still there and is located to the right of the parking lot shown in the picture.

I take that back, the building is behind the person taking the photo. It is now occupied by the salvation army

This was a great kid place in the 40’s……3 features, cartoons and short subjects on Sat and Sunday afternoon.Cost about ten cents. We were upset when the price shot up to eleven.
