Previous Names: Krim Theater
The Krim Theater, designed by Charles N. Agree in his usual Streamline Moderne style, opened April 26, 1941 with Errol Flynn in “The Sea Hawk” & Janet Gayner in “A Star is Born”. It could seat over 760.
During most of the 1950’s, the Krim Theater screened art and foreign fare, and featured a nearly year-long run of “Julius Caesar” with Marlon Brando, which outgrossed most of the downtown movie palaces.
Later renamed the Trans-Lux Krim, the theater turned to pornographic films in the 1970’s and 1980’s, before being purchased by the Revival Tabernacle Assembly of God church in 1990.
Still owned by the church, the former theater is now dwarfed by the church’s new building next door, which opened in the summer of 2002.
