Built in 1927 by the estate of Samuel Farkas, the Albany Theater was the first steel-framed building in Albany, and designed by Roy A. Benjamin of Jacksonville, Florida, who was a prolific designer of theaters throughout the Southeast. The Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority purchased the theater in 2011, and in October 2012 it was announced that 3 to 4 apartments were planned for construction. The theater portion of the building would have to be demolished.
