This item from the July 3, 1941 issue of Film Daily indicates that the remodeling of the Norwood Theatre that year was actually to be a complete reconstruction.

“To Demolish Norwood

“The Norwood Theater on Woodward Ave., one of the oldest neighborhood theaters in the city, is to be torn down in about a month for street widening, and will be replaced by an entirely new theater structure.”

The building, now completely gutted, is currently listed for sale for $625,000.

If anyone has any photos of this theater (interior or exterior) from 1915-1949 it would be greatly appreciated, as it was designed by WS Joy an architect I am constantly curious about.
