I used to watch Saturday morning matinee movies there as a kid in the late 50s and early 60s. It shut down due to the theaters opening in the local malls, and the lack of parking for the Broadmoor. The building was purchased by the Broadmoor Baptist Church, across Atlantic Avenue at Youree Drive, and was torn down to make a parking lot. An attempt to place it on the Historical Register was made, but too late. I salvaged one of the glass bricks shown in this photo as it was being torn down. A sad loss for Shreveport.

This opened on May 28th, 1947. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section for this cinema.

From 1947, a movie ad for a double feature at the Broadmoor Theater in Shreveport.
