Henrico Cinema

-A A +A
1940, Edward F. Sinnott. 300 block of E. Nine Mile Rd.
  • Henrico Cinema (Pierre Courtois)

This is the most elaborate example of Moderne design still surviving in Henrico County. The monolithic stucco composition retains its original marquee and shiny metal hoods over the doors and windows. The name “Henrico” is proudly centered at the top of the tripartite front wall, above a clock. Henrico County has purchased the currently unusued structure and may locate a community hall here.
