Opened in 1921 with as screening of the Oscar Micheaux film “Symbol of the Unconquered”. It opened as the New Dunbar Theatre by the Savannah Motion Picture Company.

West Broad is now Martin Luther King Boulevard. The theater would be across the street from the Ralph Gilbert Civil Rights Museum, approximately. Everything on the odd side of the street has been leveled to make way for an adjacent freeway. Status should be closed/demolished.

Stood on the right side of the 1-16 exit ramp across from where W Gaston St and MLK Jr. meets. A grassy space today.
