Does anyone remember the Gateway Theater on East Lancaster? I believe it was near Oakland Blvd. :smwink:

Several months late on this topic, but yes I remember the Gateway. It was on the northeast corner of East Lancaster and Sargent, the building stood where the McDonalds is (specifically where the west parking area/drive thru is). Here is a link to a picture...

I remember going there several times when I was really young. Think it closed in the very early 70's. I thought I remembered it burning down, but the Cinema Treasures pic looks as though it had been boarded up while fairly intact.

I vaguely remember the theater.  Since I grew up on the South Side, I didn't get over to East Lancaster too often.

It was gone by the time I started frequenting that part of town just about forty years ago. I see by Historic Aerials that it was there as long ago as 1952 and was still there in1970.
