Camden Theater

The theater is named for the surrounding neighborhood. It was across the street from Webber Park. The New Camden Theatre was opened by 1942. The theater was closed around 1980 and was demolished in the early-1990’s to make way for a strip mall. The theater marquee letters were saved and are used on the new commercial building as a beacon for the neighorhood.
