The Warfield Theatre, located on Hastings Street at Farnsworth Avenue, originally opened in 1914 with seating for 376. It was designed by architect Albert Kahn. By 1933 it was operating as an African-American theatre. It was demolished in March 1936.
A new larger Warfield Theatre was built on the site. It had an Art Moderne style catered for African-American audiences. It closed in 1949, but reopened briefly in the early-to-mid 1950’s before closing again in 1959. It has since been razed.
