Al Johnson's slide of the Romeo was also shot in August 1948 and the film "Winter Meeting" starring Bette Davis and James Davis, is shown on the marquee. The color image shows a fairly new building in "art moderne" style with a beautiful two-tone blue color scheme. The Romeo Theatre is one of just a handful of Johnson projects that deviated from his trademark standard cream and red colors. The Garrison Chevrolet used car lot can be seen to the left of the theater, and a garage can be seen to the right. Unfortunately, the Romeo Theatre building appears to have been been razed and replaced by a smaller one-story building housing the People Driven Credit Union - at least according to Google Maps.
