Highland Theater

Here stands the enduring hulk of the Highland Theater, the one-time pride and joy of Montgomery’s Highland Avenue “streetcar community”. This neighborhood picture show was opened just after WW II, and managed to stay open for little more than 20 years. In 1950 it was one of 13 single screen movie houses in Montgomery. The awful corner window design reveals its period as late 1940s.

In the late 1950s it was sold to Shelton’s Lock and Key Service, pictured at right
