Dixie Theatre (New Theatre)
Collins designed the New Theatre for Albert Schultz to accommodate stage and film performances. In 1936 after a fire gutted the interior, it was remodeled as a movie house. Remodeled again, the interior is reconfigured with three auditoria. But the exterior retains much of its showy design, providing a colorful and decorative note to the street with tall arched windows inlaid with glazed terra-cotta tiles in colors of blue, green, and yellow, and a row of sculpted theatrical masks along the upper portion of the brick walls. The first story has been altered.
