Mid-Century Takoma Park Theater Destroyed by Fire

The mid-century Allen Theater on New Hampshire Avenue in Takoma Park was destroyed by fire this weekend. The theater opened in 1951 and closed in 1990. The building had been housing a clothes and shoe store. The Just Up the Pike blog has good details and vintage photos here.
