Bismarck Theatre

The Bismarck Theatre was located to the west from the Lynch Street Police Station. It was a two story building but very narrow. There was no balcony. It was located in a heavily populated area of row houses on the near south side.

It was one of numerous neighborhood theatres in the area. The theatre opened by 1910 and was closed by 1930. It is now used for a storage building.
