Millwald Theatre
1928, Frye and Stone. 205 W. Main St.

This building has a speckled buff-colored brick facade organized in panels and ornamented with the type of classical motifs such as garlands and rondels that were popular for theatrical buildings at the time. The recessed entrance shelters a polygonal ticket booth lined with black Carrara glass and is flanked by shop windows. A rectangular marquee is capped with a bold neon sign with the building's name. Closed in 2006, the building now houses a church.
