This neighborhood theatre opened in late-1927. It was redecorated and reopened on August 28, 1938 with Joe Penner in “New Faces of 1938”. It was closed in the mid-1960’s. A carpeting business occupied the building for 15 years. It was demolished around 2009.
I remember as a child, seeing the marquee of the Garfield Theatre advertising ‘Polish Pictures’. I remember asking my mother, what are Polish Pictures, pronouncing ‘Polish’ like how it’s pronounced for shoe polish or furniture polish, instead of someone from Poland. My mother laughed.
