The Art Moderne style Midtown opened in 1941, and could seat 876. During the 60s, the theater underwent a series of name changes, as well as formats, beginning in 1962, when it was renamed the Studio Midtown. A year later, it switched to art and foreign fare as the Midtown Art. At the end of 1964, it became an adult film house as the Midtown Follies. For the past decade or so, the former movie house has been home to a church.

The Midtown was built by my father, Julius D. London, in 1941. It was co-owned and managed by his eldest son Milton except for the time he spent in the army during WW2. Julius died in 1952 and our family sold the theater in the late 1950's.
