Previous Names: Elmwood Theatre
This theatre was opened on April 27, 1914. The seating capacity was given as 1,600 in the 1940’s when it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Vincent McFaul. It was closed for a while and reopened on May 15, 1963 with Glen Ford in “Love is a Ball”. It was demolished in 1965. It should not be confused with Elmwood Center megaplexes.
A WurliTzer 3 manual 15 ranks theatre pipe organ, Opus 568, was shipped to this theatre on August 21, 1922. I think eventually the entire organ went to a private owner in Detroit, Michigan. In January 1971 parts of the organ went to a private owner in Salt Lake City, Utah and the console to another private owner in Long Beach, California.
