Opened on October 11, 1937 with Jack Benny & Ida Lupino in “Artists and Models”. The Markham Theater was a large neighborhood theater 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 Theater was closed in 1969. It reopened as the Adult Theatre on September 17, 1970. It was later demolished for a parking lot for a neighboring funeral home.
