Previous Names: Huntington Theatre
Originally a legitimate theater dating to the turn of the 20th century, and later switching over to movies, the 960 seat, Huntington Theatre received a stunning Art Moderne style facelift in 1940. By 1950 it was operated by the Affiliated Theaters Inc. out of Indianapolis, IN.
Glazed terra cotta tiles, in shades of beige and burgundy, cover the facade, and the burgundy tiles continue down from the facade to the curving, sleek shapes of the ticket booth, display cases, and the large oval-shaped windows of the businesses on each side of the Huntington Theatre.
A small-but-elegant marquee extends from the center panel of the facade, just over the simple canopy marquee.
After closing as a movie theatre in the 1990’s, the building housed a church. The church moved out in 2007 and the building was restored, reopening in 2008 as a supper club with live performances and now known as the New Huntington Theater.
