The Lake Theatre is located on Lake Avenue, near the neighborhood known as Charlotte. The exterior is brick and decorative concrete trim with art deco overtones. Portions of the interior (now Charlotte Furniture and Appliance) were still intact ten years ago when I was last in there.
These included mirrors in the former lobby with fancy sconces installed into the middle of them, and the proscenium arch in the former auditorium. I think the staircases to the balcony were also still there in one piece. There was a ballroom over the front entrance originally. My mother occasionally reminisces about the Saturday matinees here, in the 1930’s. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit. It was still open in 1950.
