Opened in 1938, the beautifully maintained San Marco Theatre remains immune to the travails of time and the Art Deco style movie palace is still showing movies after 63 years. Featured on the back cover of Davis Cone’s book, Popcorn Palaces, the San Marco Theatre is one of the most elegant and opulent cinemas in the city, designed by architect Roy Benjamin.

I am fortunate to live close to this theatre and see films in it periodically. My newfound infatuation with art deco also moves me to learn more about this theatre and other deco buildings in Jacksonville, esp. in the St. Nicholas area(wonderful glass brick signs there!)
