The Midway Theatre opened on December 24, 1932 with Joe E. Brown in “You Said A Mouthful”. It was designed by the firm of Magaziner, Eberhard, and Harris for Samuel Shapiro. Besides a 2,727-seat movie theatre, the building housed offices, stores, and a restaurant. It stood on Allegheny Avenue near Kensington Avenue.
The Art Deco-style theatre featured a large vertical sign rising over a gear-like semi-circular marquee (later replaced by a simple triangular-shaped marquee). By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.
The Midway Theatre lasted into the 1970’s, and was torn down in 1979. A Burger King was later built on the site, today a Dunkin' Donuts.
