Old-School Movie Theater Still Stands on Fabons Street

Check out this shot by Brian Luenser.

Near the intersection of Fabons and Rosedale streets stands the image of a time gone by — the Grand Theater, a former movie theater built in 1938. It once served as a place where African-American families could gather and watch movies during segregation. After the theater closed, a church took it over for a short time. Now it’s home to 619 Productions, a charitable arts organization, but glimpses of the building’s past life — like the vintage marquee on the facade — remain.
