Midtown Twin Cinema

The 700-seat Dixie-Bonita Theatre was opened around 1940. By 1943 it was operating as the Dixie Theatre. It was twinned and re-opened as the Midtown Twin Cinema in April 1970. It later became an adult oriented theatre. The Midtown Twin Cinema was closed in July of 1976. It has since been demolished and Miller Park now occupies the block.

This theatre was the Dixie up until it was twined and renamed in the 1970s.
