The Comet Theatre opened in 1939 on Finney Avenue.
They put neon along the roof line of the theatre above the marquee with a comet shooting across the top. In 1940, the Comet Theatre became an African-American theatre.
The theatre survived until 1972. It stood closed for many years, but had a huge hole in the side of the building. You could look in and still see the seats and the torn screen. It was later demolished.
