Roy A. Benjamin
He designed several theaters in Jacksonville and the surrounding southeast region. His work included Jacksonville's Imperial Theatre (demolished), Palace Theatre (Jacksonville) (demolished), Riverside Theatre, San Marco Theatre, and Arcade Theater (Jacksonville). He assisted on the Florida Theatre (with R.E. Hall) and on Memorial Park (Jacksonville) (with the Olmsted Brothers). He worked with Mellen C. Greeley from 1919 to 1924. After World War II he retired and sold his practice to William D. Kemp, Franklin S. Bunch, and William K. Jackson, who have continued the firm as KBJ Architects.
He also designed the PAL Theatre for owner Mr. Mitchell F. Brice in 1927 in downtown Vidalia, Georgia. The Pal Theatre in Vidalia was owned by Mr Brice and his heirs until 2004. It is currently owned by the City of Vidalia and is under renovation as of the summer of 2016.
Roy A. Benjamin also designed a theater in downtown Lake Worth, FL. The theater was built in the 1940s. In 2010 the building was donated by the Montgomery family to serve as a home for the Palm Beach Cultural Council. Admission is free and open to the public.
