General Information:

AKA: Linwood-LaSalle


Man oh Man. I remember going down what was then 12th street, now called Rosa Parks Boulevard back in the summer of 1957-1959 w/my 2 small brothers to go to this movie theatre. Those days everyone called it Going to The Show. It was great to get away from home by ourselves. The admission price was a nickle or a dime to get in. That was a lot of money for my mother and father in those days. On the way there we would take a short cut down Indiandale Street and pick plums off the tree that hung over the backyard fence of a home on to eat in the movie. may how things changed.

Theater was demolished given the empty lot at that address.
