An early 1920's ad for the Roosevelt Theatre for the film " The Heart of A Fool " .

There were several smaller black theatres that opened up just off of the main entertainment hub of Pennsylvania Avenue. The Roosevelt Theatre operated on Biddle Street near the intersection of Druid Hill Avenue in West Baltimore.
  The site of the old Roosevelt Theatre in West Baltimore is impossible to locate today. The entire 500 block of West Biddle Street is gone,  and is now a part of the new Martin Luther King Kr. Blvd., a popular cut thru from downtown to uptown. This school, at the intersection of Martin King Jr. Blvd. and Druid Hill Ave is the best I can find of the location of the old theatre.
