American Theater

This theater is a beautiful example of the Art Moderne style, opened on September 19, 1942 with Judy Canova in “Joan of Ozark”. The theater is located in Charleston’s historic downtown, on King Street, along with the Riviera Theater and Garden Theater.

After showing movies with dining, the American Theater has now become a conference facility.

Posting “predictions” about a theater is not historical information. When these predictions prove to be false, they diminish the value of this forum. Anyone’s comments are welcomed by all of us, as long as they are factual. Posting rumors or false information is not appreciated. Please don’t trash this excellent forum.
