Moreland Theatre

The Moreland Theatre at 11820 Buckeye Road. This theatre had a varied career, first as a picture house, later as a Hungarian Supper Club. It was also a teen club, an illegal nightclub, and eventually a church. Back in the mid-70's I had a friend who lived in this building. We could climb out a hallway window, into a light well, and into the projection room. The place was empty back then, glad it's being used for something now.
