The Macklind was a small neighborhood house located a block west of Kingshighway Blvd. The Macklind was built in 1910 as the Arsenal and was just a plain and simple theatre to take care of the nieghborhood movie goers. Single floor structure with a small entrance and the ticket booth facing the street. The Macklind closed in 1951 and was gutted and a plumbing company has occupied the building since. The Macklind was located right at the entrance to the Hill neighborhood (Italian Section of the City).

The theatre was never known as the Arsenal, even though it was on that street.
