The Dunbar Theatre, designed by architect Raymond M. Harmon, opened on August 15, 1941 with Bing Crosby & Bob Hope in “Road to Zanzibar” & Frankie Darro in “The Gang’s All Here (aka In the Night). This theatre was built for African Americans. It was named after Paul Laurence Dunbar, an African American poet. It was taken over by Dickinson Theatres during World War II. It was leased out to independent operators in 1948. The Dunbar Theatre closed in 1963. In 2008 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building still stands but is vacant, but by 2022 renovations had begun to convert into an arts center.
