Gwynn Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Gwynn Theatre was never a impressive house. It was across the street from the Ambassador Theatre. It opened in 1933 and closed in 1951.

The Ambassador Theatre across the street marked the end for the Gwynn Theatre, and the theatre closed its doors soon after the Ambassador Theatre opened. The Gwynn Theatre was boarded up for years, later it was used as a Rite Aid Drug store, and in the early-2000’s was reopened as a shoe store.

It was demolished in March 2012 to make way for a supermarket.

The Ambassador opened in 1935. The Gwynn did not close until the 1950s. The two theaters showed very different types of films. The Gwynn was the action house.

For a much more panoramic view of the 3rd pic down (left) on the site Lost Memory referenced, jump to my 6/18 comments on the Amabassador Theater site.

The Gwynn was still open for business in April, 1951. In the photo I mentioned yesterday, the marquee lists Bette Davis in “All About Eve.”

Would anyone know who the architect was for the Gwynn? Please share, and thanks!
