The Riverside Theatre in Cleveland was listed in the “New Theaters” column of The Film Daily for April 9, 1938. The item named the architect only as Burrows. This must have been George Howard Burrows, architect of at least five other theaters in north central Ohio.

No problem, Lost Memory. I wanted to be certain to get James L. Smith’s name credited.

The photo “Lost Memory” has posted comes from our website, westparkhistory.com, where it was posted courtesy of James L. Smith.

You can see another old photo of the Riverside Theater on our site and read a bit about it.

The Riverside was owned by the local chainlette called Community Circuit – headed by Bert Lefkowich. Loews bought out Community Circuit in the mid 1970s and twinned it. I think Loews ran it til it was demolished.
