Opened as the 1,349-seat Douglass Theatre on February 15, 1922. It was renamed Royal Theatre from November 30, 1925 with vaudeville & movies, catering for an African-American audience. It was demolished in 1971.
When you look back at a busy Pennsylvania Avenue in the late-1960’s the Royal Theatre was operating as a movie theatre and just behind it the New Carver Theatre (a.k.a. Diane Theatre) as well. Further up the block the Regent Theatre stood. The entire area has been razed and nothing survives today as far as movie theatres.
In a vacant lot where the Royal Theatre once stood there is a sign declaring the the Royal Theatre Memorial Park. To this day nothing has come about to make it a park, just a fenced-in area.
