Hi Way Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Hi Way Theatre opened in 1949 as a single floor theatre seating 416. It was originally called the Crystal Hi Way since it was located in the Crystal City part of the twin cities. Just three blocks north of the more elaborate Miller (aka La Jade) Theatre.

The Hi Way Theatre had a short life and couldn’t compete with the Miller Theatre. The final blow was television and the theatre closed after 1957. The building is now a general merchandise store.

The Hi Way actually opened in 1949 and was open past 1957. The correct address is 516 Bailey Rd. The Building is now Flipside Too which teaches cheerleading.
