The Alcazar Theatre was opened prior to 1911. It was closed in 1921 as other newer and more elegant theatres opened. No details on the decor, seating capacity or architect. After closing it sat vacant until Mangel’s Ladies Wear opened there in 1928; it remained there until 1978 when it closed. Not long after it was incorporated into the Maas Brothers Department store that takes up most of that block.
Maas Brothers closed this location in 1991 and the majority of the buildings on this block have been abandoned and not maintained since. Condemnation was approved in 2000 but little has happened since that time.
