Midtown Theatre

The former Midtown Theatre, which had a very brief career as a movie house in the late-1940’s and early-1950’s, later served as a warehouse. It was renovated in the late-1990’s with the intention of becoming a live theate. Today, the former Midtown houses a cafe and banquet facility.
