________________________________________________________

The Royal Theatre, which first opened in 1922 as the black-owned Douglass Theatre, was the most famous theater along West Baltimore City's Pennsylvania Avenue, one of a circuit of five such theaters for black entertainment in big cities. Its sister theaters were the Apollo in Harlem, the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C., the Regal Theatre in Chicago, and the Earl Theater in Philadelphia. When racial separation was the normal condition in the United States, many other similar theatres owned by Negroes existed in various other cities and towns. Of late, those former nightspots have been called "Chitlin' circuit" by some people. Ownerships of such establishments by Negroes has declined under the new policy called "racial integration."
