Richmond Then and Now: Bellevue Theater

A then and now snapshot of Richmond.

The two pictures above are from Cinema Treasures and the one below from RTD Archives. The Jungle Princess is a 1936 American adventure film directed by Wilhelm Thiele starring Dorothy Lamour and Ray Milland. Tropic Holiday was released in 1938 also starring Dorothy Lamour. With no evidence to support this claim, I can’t help but wonder if our unknown photographer was a Dorothy Lamour fan.


Architecture Richmond has a bit of history on the theater here.
