The Moreland Theater is a 675-seat single-screen cinema that originally opened in 1926. It has retained its original name and operated as a movie theater since its opening. Like many other neighborhood theaters built in the ’20s, the Moreland presented vaudeville acts along with silent pictures. The Moreland originally had a 2/6 Robert Morton organ. In the ’20s, the stage shows were discontinued in favor of “talkies”–the Moreland changed with the times, updating its equipment and keeping up with new technology, but has always retained its single auditorium and distinctive neighborhood appeal.
