Opened on August 6, 1941 with Melvyn Douglas is “This Thing Called Love” & The Aldrich Family in “Life With Henry”. The Redskin Theatre was truly a cinema treasure. It had a large and magnificent red, trimmed in blue and white vertical sign spelling out “Redskin”. The sign was topped by three Indians. One chief, standing in full head dress with a raised tomahawk. Another chief, keeping look out on bent beside him and a warrior, also on look out and bent knee behind these two. I discovered and photographed the Redskin Theatre in the late-1980’s. Seating inside the auditorium was located in orchestra and balcony levels. The ceiling had a Navajo patterned stencil, and the side-walls had Indian inspired stencils.
Closed in 1994, it was razed in 2004.
