A tiny Deco theatre opened in 1939, closed in the mid-1970s, probably thanks to stiff competition from the nearby mall theatres. This was considered the edge of the earth when the Westway was built, but later suburban development doomed the little movie. Its hallmark, still being used by the church that occupies it, is a beautiful circular marquee crowned by a little tiny ziggurat.
