Information for this tour was contributed by Jeff Knoll.

Opened by the Zumar Brothers in 1947 with an 894-seat capacity, the Elmdale was midway between the Nola Theatre (to the West) and the Victoria (to the east, later the Towne). Purchased by Odeon Theatres after the closing of the Nola in 1948, it was renovated as a twin-screen theatre in 1981. In operation as a cinema until 1994, the building currently houses a Church.
