Previous Names: Gem Theatre
Opened in 1927 as the Gem Theatre. Dave Lebovitz and his brother owned and operated several ‘colored’ movie theatres: Ace Theatre, Harlem Theatre and Georgia Theatre. It was unique in that the street frontage was mostly commercial with a long central hallway. This hallway ended in a staircase as the auditorium was on a small rise behind the commercial building.
The Harlem Theatre closed in 1957. Located on Florida Street at Farrow Avenue, since closing the building has been demolished and the corner section of the commercial space is all that remains today..
