DUNBAR THEATRE

CENTRAL AVENUE Near MONUMENT STREET

The Dunbar Theatre, operated by the
Dunbar Amusement Corporation, with Mr
Josiah Diggs, President; Dr. James Hilburn
Secretary and Treasurer, and Mr. Walter
W. Carr, Manager and Vice-President is a
monument to the industry, untiring energy
and faith in the people of Baltimore mani-
fest by its president and founder

Mr. Diggs opened his house, which was
then a much smaller building, with a capa-
city of 350 people, back in 1917, and by the
dint of continual effort and persistency
"carried on" until in November, 1923, be
was compelled to rebuild or, the original
site when he enlarged his theatre to a mag-
nificent building, 75x100 feet, with a capac-
ity of 1, 000 people, making it the largest
move house for our people in Maryland

Besides pictures from such famous studios
as Paramount, Pox, Metro Goldwyn, War-
ner Bros., and First National, the Dunbar
has an unexcelled orchestra led by Carlos
Daugherty.

Visitors in the City should make it
a special point to visit the Dunbar Theatre.

Josiah Diggs, Pres.

Biggest Moving Picture Theatre in Maryland
