The Dante Theatre opened on Broad Street near Federal Street on May 12, 1937, with Lyle Talbot in “What Price Vengeance”. The theatre was designed in a Streamline Moderne style by architect Armand de Cortieux Carroll. A year later, the architectural firm of Thalheimer & Weitz was hired to remodel the Dante Theatre. By 1950 it was operated by the A.M. Ellis Theaters Co. chain. The Dante Theatre was closed on May 17, 1964 with Vince Edwards in “The Victors” & Kerwin Matthews in “The Maniac”. Today the building is the home of the JNA Institute of Culinary Arts.
