Can anyone give me info on the Cinemart on Gov Prinz? I can’t find any info anywhere, but, I stop to look at it every time I’m in the area. What a mystery. The only thing I can tell is that I was built in the 60’s due to the chandelier and font on the front sign.

In the summer of 1973, Blue Oyster Cult and Peter Frampton played a live concert here because all the venues in Philly were booked. I was sitting in for the manager that week, and Frampton used my office for a dressing room. Two weeks later we held Wilmington’s first All Night Movie Horrorthon, including Night of the Living Dead and 3 other horror films. Started at midnight and lasted all night. But the biggest hit we had was when Tom Laughlin rented the theatre for his four-wall reissue of BILLY JACK which sold out almost every show. What a summer that was!

The September 17, 1938, issue of Motion Picture Herald said that David Supowitz had acted as consulting architect for the Warner Theatre, then under construction in Wilmington.
