Opened in 1947 by the Vermes Brothers, the Yorktown Theatre was one of numerous theaters designed by Cleveland architect George Ebeling.

I was in this theater once before it was twinned and it seemed much larger than 600 seats. More in the thousand range. It seemed quite large to me. I imagine the twinning created 2 long tunnel type theaters similar to Loew’s East and West. I remember it being a nice theater.

Yorktown Theater closed in 1996/1997, not 1994. In 1994, it stopped showing new movies and became sort of a Parma/Detroit Theater clone…but it was still a movie theater. I know this because in 1996, they showed at Yorktown Disney’s Oliver and Company when Disney re-released it.
