McGill Theater

-A A +A
1929, Albert Collins. 8 4th St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The theater stands in the middle of McGill's commercial district, which is characterized by early twentieth-century one- and two-story buildings of brick, concrete, or wood. Despite its simplicity, the theater is one of the more noteworthy structures on this street. Rectangular concrete panels, decorated with bricks laid in a diamond motif, relieve the brick facade, which rises to a curved parapet. A hexagonal ticket booth stands between two pairs of wooden doors. Like most of the other businesses along 4th Street, the theater has been empty for several years.
