Added some historic images from a City of Lakewood Heritage Advisory Board agenda requesting historic status for the building that housed the Homestead Theater. Thursday, September 24, 2020

In late February of 1974, the Homestead reopened as the Showboat Cinema West with a screening of LAST TANGO IN PARIS

The history page of the Phantasy Concert Club’s web site has a photo of the theater as the Homestead, sometime in the mid-1950s. There are also some modern photos, including two (rather dark) of the auditorium.

A guide prepared for the 5th annual Lakewood History Walk (Quick View at Google Documents) says that the Homestead Tehatre was built in 1916. A couple of other sources say it was built in 1917, so maybe it was begun in 1916 and completed in 1917. It’s definitely pre-1920, though.
