Maryland Theatre

The Maryland opened in 1910 and was a single floor theatre located a block west of 12th Street, the main north-south street of the city. It was located in the middle of the block and surrounded by houses on each side. Truly a neighborhood theatre.

The Maryland had a small lobby but was rather decorative. Had a carpeted floor and two crystal chandeliers in the lobby. The auditorium was a contrast to its lobby in that is was rather plain, with the only d├ęcor the light fixtures on the side walls. There was no stage or a curtain that covered the screen.

The theatre closed in 1957 and became a Pentecostal church until 1964. The theatre was demolished a short time later.

Theatre opened in early 1910.

Sam Komm didn’t enter the picture until 1938.

Wm. Sehybal, Jr. is listed on the building permit as the architect.

Growing up,I went yo the Maryland and also the Peerless,the New Shenandoah and princess. All within walking distance. I believe the Peerless started out as the Apache.

Mousefelix, The Peerless was always the Peerless. The New Shenandoah became the Apache.
