I remember my parents taking me to the Shaw Theatre when I was a kid. Around 1951 through 1955-ish. In fact I remember my mother throwing me over her shoulder and walking home with me at night. Down to Blaine Avenue. 4100 ish. Wouldn’t drive through the neighborhood now. As I can recall the theater was built all the way up to the sidewalk. There was just a brick wall all along 39th St. Per the photo, it looks as though the theater has been razed? Although the open space doesn’t make sense. Not enough room and the existing retail couldn’t have faced 39th St. when the theater was there.

Even in 1957 they were making them drug stores.
