The Agnew Theater was opened March 28, 1947 with Bing Crosby in “Blue Skies” & Roy Rogers in “Roll On Texas Moon”. It was operated by Griffith Theatres. The exterior is dominated by a tall pylon-like tower, faced in porcelain enamel, with the theatre name vertically placed. The 1,000 seats in the auditorium were all on a single floor.
The Agnew Theater was closed April 29, 1957 with Audie Murphy in “The Guns of Fort Petticoat” & John Garfield in “The Made Me a Criminal”. In later years became a restaurant. By 2022 it was in use as an ‘adult’ club.
