No one has favorited this theater yet
The Dunbar Theater, in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, not far from the larger and equally historic Howard Theater, is located on Seventh Street at T Street.
The Dunbar opened in 1921, designed by Isaiah T. Hatton in the earlier Southern Aid Society Building. From the time it opened, until it closed in 1960, the nearly-350 seat Dunbar was a popular venue for live entertainment, including many legendary jazz and blues artists, such as Duke Ellington, who appeared on the Dunbar’s stage during the 30s. The theater also showed movies.
Though there have been several plans to restore and reuse the landmark Dunbar (which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986), none of them have yet come to pass and the theater still sits forlorn and vacant today.
