Opened with a matinee showing of “Roaring Twenties” on November 21, 1939. Opening picture in photos.

Bryan, I clicked your link, and I went to the site. I typed in “Hyattsville Theater” and found nothing. However, when I typed in Hyattsville TheatRE" the image came up, and there were my statues !!!
I don’t recall them being so large, but there they are. I have to figure out the lighting. Thanks so much. Thank you all for helping.

The photo link didn’t work. I am amazed that Hyattsville images remain so illusive. It was such a cool theater, and torn down waaaay too soon. I vaguely recall being inside.

I recall a frozen custard place with a plaster polar bear near the Hyattsville theater, and a Howard Johnson’s near it, too. We always walked to the theater from Calvert Holmes ERCO ? aircraft housing. On a recent trip to Maryland, I tried to pinpoint where it had been, and got frustrated by all the drastic changes along US # one. It’s a heavy lost feeling, sometimes.

The Hyattsville closed on Tuesday 2/16/65. The last program was a double bill of “Your Cheating Heart” (1964) and “Go, Johnny Go” (1959).

I believe that I saw “Tarzan’s Savage Fury” (1952) at a Saturday matinee there on 6/23/56.
