An article in the 8/17/1975 edition of the Dayton Daily News puts the address as 6151 Far Hills Ave which would make the theatre map on the other side of the street.

Intimate & comfortable cinema that I miss. Saw many mainstream films there such as WHAT’S UP DOC & THE TURNING POINT. It wasn’t until the late 70’s, early 80’s that the cinema seemed to focus more on foreign films. I recall sitting through a riveting showing of the Alain Resnais film, PROVIDENCE. Also saw THE TIN DRUM & FELLINI’S CITY OF WOMEN among others. When the end came, it wasn’t totally unexpected. I remember going to several films and being the only one in the audience.

I used to usher there for Mr Mills on the weekends, worked for his wife at the Dayton Mall (3-4). Typically ran more art movies there, seemed much more clean and classy for lack of a better word. Lots of foreign language films, Fellini / “City of Women” stands out. Theater was indeed in the shopping center, next to what is now a Dorothy Lane Market, not across street.

Hey gang, I just got back from the Dayton Amateur Radio Convention. This is what I saw. There is no way that the Jersey Mike’s Subs building is or ever was a 400 seat single screen theatre. It’s way too small and way too new. I talked to a friend who watched movies up there frequently and he said the theatre was unassuming, but across the street in the Washington Square Shopping Center between the still existing upscale grocery store and a place called “Upper Crust”.

Saw “Kagemusha”, “Time After Time” and “The Return of the Secaucus 7” at this theater back in the late 70’s. Stop in and say “Hi” to Carrie at the sandwich shop, she used to go to movies at this theater all those years ago.
