Boynton Theater from a postcard, circa mid to late 1950s

Built in 1921 by William Menzel, this single screen venue was Boynton Beach’s first movie house. It had wooden floors and in the silent era had piano accompaniment. It was closed around 1959. In the mid-1950’s, a shopping plaza was built adjacent to the theater. I believe it was shuttered before the opening of the Twin in 1973. The shopping plaza that the Boynton resided in was demolished in 2006. The location is now a large condo development.

The Boynton must have stayed open until at least 1959 as this flyer confirms a showing of “Al Capone” with Rod Steiger. Year of closing is still not clear.
