32 Abercorn Street
The majestic historic Lucas Theatre opened in 1921 to a sold-out viewing of the film "Camille." The theatre operated continuously
Designed by architect C. K. Howell for Arthur M. Lucas, a leading theatre entrepreneur, the four-story terra cotta, concrete and steel building was originally designed for silent movies and vaudeville performances. The ornate exterior is matched by an elegant interior in the Adamesque style, with Italian marble stairways, Wedgewood inspired colors and gold leaf accents, all restored to their original beauty. A 40-foot wide ceiling dome greatly adds to the splendor of the building.
