Camden Theater

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The theater is named for the surrounding neighborhood. It was across the street from Webber Park. The theater was demolished in the early 90s to make way for a strip mall. The theater marquee letters were saved and are used on the new commercial building as a beacon for the neighorhood.
