Ingersoll Theatre

-A A +A
1939. 3711 Ingersoll Ave.

As usual, it is the Streamline Moderne marquee that advertises the presence of this late-thirties suburban theater. The angled marquee, with the letters of the theater's name projecting above, terminates in a layered semicircle covered with lights. The body of the theater is sheathed in light tan brick which displays a series of lined patterns running vertically and horizontally.
