Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theater opened in 1942 for the Griffith Company, which seems to have been a regional chain. The facade is very plain, but attractive, with distinctive round windows at the top. The marquee appears to be from the 1960’s, but the vertical is the original, and quite an interesting design. The outdoor ticket booth is still in use. The theater was twinned at some point, but this was removed when the theater was restored for use as a performing arts venue in 1999-2000.
