Bloomfield Theatre

The Bloomfield Theatre was the third theater to be built in Birmingham. The Bloomfield Theatre was constructed on the east side of Woodward Avenue a short distance south of Brown Street. It opened in 1941, with seating provided for 957, all located on a single floor.

Unlike the Kunsky Theatre, Birmingham, the Bloomfield Theatre was strictly a movie house. It lacked both the large, deep stage of its predecessor as well as dressing rooms for vaudeville performances or actors which might appear from time to time at the older theatre. It was also somewhat smaller.

A gas station now occupies the theater’s former location. This is an item from Boxoffice magazine in January 1960:

Keith Musser moved from the Bloomfield to the Birmingham, and Alan Teicher, assistant at the Palms, was upped to manager of the Bloomfield. No replacement was made at the Palms, supervisor Gil Green reports.
