Maumee Indoor Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built in 1946, the Maumee Theatre still has its original Streamline Moderne style tower that’s located above the marquee.

The city of Maumee purchased the building in 2000 and restored and renovated it in 2003-2004. The theater now shows second-run films and is operated by Great Eastern Theatres.

The Maumee Indoor Theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

This was part of the Donald Young chain in the early sixties. The Strand Theater in Maumee was also operated by this circuit at the time.

The Maumee Theatre was taken over by the Great Eastern Theatre Co. in 1987, according to an article in Boxoffice Magazine’s November issue that year. The former operator, Armstrong Theatres, had gone out of business. Great Eastern took over Armstrong’s Cla-Zel Theatre in Bowling Green, Ohio, at the same time. Various other Armstrong houses were taken over by other operators, or closed down.

In 1987, the seating capacity of the Maumee was 750, according to the Boxoffice article.

The Maumee marquee can be seen in a cable promo spot for CurrentTV’s “50 Documentaries To See Before You Die”, hosted by Morgan Spurlock. The show’s title is on display on the illuminated marquee, with the host standing below it as I recall.
