Shaker Heights Patch is celebrating the 100 years of Shaker Heights history by creating an online scrapbook. Each day for 100 days, we'll feature a photograph that helps tell the story of Shaker Heights.
Today's photo features the Fairmount Theatre on Warrensville Center Road and Fairmount Boulevard. The theater was next to John Carroll University, but it was located in Shaker Heights according to the county property records.The cinema closed and a Huntington Bank branch now occupies the space.
There's not much information about this theater, so we're asking readers to help us out. The postcard comes from the late 40s or early 50s. The movie on the marquee, "You Gotta Stay Happy," was released in 1948. If you beat the summer heat by ducking into the Fairmount Theatre, tell us in the comments.
