I’m conducting a real estate assessment on the southern side of the block of Memorial Drive (originally Fair Street) between Berean Avenue and Cameron Street that is currently addressed as 655 and 663. According to the city directory and sanborn maps I have this movie house was there in 1932 and remained through 1952 addressed as 657 Memorial Drive. A truck parts facility has been at this location since the mid 1960’s in a building they constructed so there is no evidence of the old movie house. Its just across the street from the Immanuel Baptist Church that was built in 1902.
