The Arthur Theatre chain (Franchon & Marco) opened the Union Theatre in 1925 and it seated 1,124. The Union was a large theatre for a neighborhood house. Two story with a large balcony. White marble front and everything inside was in a forest green and burgundy red. Large stage area with a large screen. The Union had a large chandelier in the auditorium shaped into a large ball with stained class of different colors that would dim when the features were started.
The changing neighborhood and blight caused the closing of the Union Theatre in October 1960.
Shortly after the theatre closed and Arthur Theatres stripped the theatre, it was converted into a church for the African American population that had moved into the neighborhood.
