Previous Names: Wonderland Theatre
Opening in 1920, the Wonderland Theatre was a vaudeville & movie theatre for African-Americans. The location given for this theatre was the corner of Pettigrew Street and Ramsey Street. Google won’t map that location so I don’t know if these streets were renamed or even exist anymore.
It is listed in the Negro Yearbook 1921-1922 and the owner manager was K. Watkins (African American). Film Daily Yearbook’s 1931-1933 list it as a Negro theatre.
There is a Booker-T Theatre operating at this location in 1949-1955 editions of Film Daily Yearbook.
