The Longwood Theatre was a Komm Theatre that opened in 1927 seating 781 on one floor. Located just three blocks north of the more elaborate Southway but still had a large patron base from the densely populated German neighborhood. The Longwood has a rather small lobby but the theatre was long and narrow. Typical of all Komm theatre the lobby had his terrazzo floors with the Komm Theatre Emblem in the middle of the lobby floor.
There was an ice cream parlor next door to the theatre and a doorway from the lobby into the parlor, but you were not allowed to take the ice cream into the theatre auditorium. This was one of the few theatres that Mr. Komm lined all the auditorium walls with draperies. No wall decor just the draperies.
The Longwood went to week ends only in 1957 and closed for good in 1962 and was demolished in 1963.
