Looking for interior photos of Streamline Moderne theaters

posted by JeffAdamson on August 23, 2010 at 9:44 am

ROCK ISLAND, IL — I have recently taken on the Rocket Theater and would love to return as much of the original look as I can. However, there are hardly any interior photos of any streamline moderne theaters on the internet. Nevertheless, I will pursue libraries and historical institutes for any photos. If anyone has photos of the Rocket Theater before 1960, that would be greatly appreciated.

Contact the Archives of the Theatre Historical Society of America. We have over 15,000 historic theatres documented.
Our Archivist, Kathy McLeister, will be happy to search our collections for your theatre, plus examples of Streamlined Moderne theatres which may help you. In the event we don’t have much or anything about yours, we most definitely have many, many images of theatres done in Streamline style from which you could gain much information.
