Opened on October 11, 1937 with Jack Benny & Ida Lupino in “Artists and Models”. The Markham Theatre was a large neighborhood theatre located on S. High Street just south of German Village. The front façade was green and black tiled and the marquee was Art Deco styled. It had no balcony, but private glassed-in screening rooms on either side of the projection booth. I recall one writer telling these were used for crying babies and the like. The auditorium was long and wide.
The Markham Theatre operated into the 1960’s then spent its last years as an adult movie theatre renamed Adult Theatre. It was demolished for a parking lot for a neighboring funeral home.
