Conversion of the Avenue Theatre into the Cameo Theatre by the Commonwealth circuit took place in 1969. The May 19 issue of Boxoffice said that the changes included a radical floor redesign and a complete redecoration. A new facade was installed as well. The architects for the project were Commonwealth’s usual choice, Milton Costlow & Associates.

Montgomery Wards was right next door back in the day. My dad slipped on some ice and broke his arm. Saw a few movies here back in the 70’s while it was the Cameo.
