   Prior to it's closing and than fire, the Squire turned to showing XXX movies like so many theaters did to make ends meet in the 1970's.

Robert K. Headley’s book “Maryland’s Motion Picture Theaters” attributes the design of the AACO Theatre (for Aberdeen Amusement Company) to architect William O. Sparklin.

Sparklin practiced in Florida later in his career and, according to the May 1, 1948, issue of Boxoffice he was engaged to design a 600-seat theater in the 1900 block of Grand Central (now renamed Kennedy Blvd.) in Tampa for George Stonaris. I don’t know if the project was built or not. Google Maps doesn’t show any theater-like buildings on that block, and nothing in that area is currently listed at Cinema Treasures.

The New Theatre had another name before it closed down. The last name this theatre was known as was the Squire Theatre.

2005 Update ! Sadly, the New Theatre in Aberdeen was quietly torn down. An update is posted on Kilduffs.com . The bank next to the old theatre has built a newer bank building and the old theatre is now ……..what else ! A parking lot.
