The Cameo Theatre was opened in 1938 with Katherine Hepburn in “Stage Door”. My grandfather, Pete Gladstone, ran this theatre in Exmore, VA. It was closed in the late-1950’s by the time I was old enough to pay attention. I have been inside the building since, once in an incarnation as a restaurant, and recently as a factory of sorts making handcrafted tile.
Pete was a great theatre man, later going on to manage the Neighborhood chain of theatres in Richmond, VA. Even though the details I currently know about the Cameo are skimpy, I hoped to see it listed here as a tribute to this wonderful man.
