News About This Theater
The Admiral Theatre sat at the corner of S. 40th Street and Farnam Street in Omaha, Nebraska. It was a conversion of a sheet metal factory. Originally a single screen house when it opened on February 4, 1942 with Joan Blondell in “Lady for a Night”. The interior was an odd style of architecture. It was designed to look and feel like a boat, with an Atmospheric Art Moderne style that feature ships hulls on the side-walls and a moon, twinkling stars and cloud effects at the screen end. It was equipped with a Hammond Electric organ which was opened by organist George Johnson. It was twinned on November 16, 1976, renamed Admiral I & II Theatre. On April 10, 1983 it was ‘temporary’ closed for remodeling. It never reopened. The final movies had been Bo Hopkins in “Sweet Sixteen” & Sandra Peabody in “The Last House on the Left”.
The building remained vacant and deteriorating and it was demolished in early-1997.
