The Republic Theatre opened on 30 May 1921 at 1333 U St., N.W., Washington, D.C.,a block west of the Lincoln Theatre. Film Daily Yearbooks listed it as a "Negro" theater. The building was designed by Phillip M. Julien. The exterior had a Spanish tile roof above the facade. The Republic was closed in 1976 and was later demolished to make way for the new Metro subway system.
