The Northwood Theatre opened on August 5, 1950, and was built as part of the up-market Northwood Shopping Center. It was re-named Northwood 99 in the Spring of 1980, operating as a discount house, but was soon closed in June 1981. It has since been converted to a bar. It was demolished in May 2020.

This theatre became the subject of numerous protests and demonstrations regarding this theatre’s segregation policies of not admitting people of color. By mid-1963,the Northwood Theatre was integrated.
