I found the tickets image in a Facebook post in a Group called “If you grew up in Niles/SW Michigan then you remember what…..who….”. It is what led me to researching and adding the Riviera to CT. I lucked out by scrolling endlessly through the Group’s Photo Section, and finding the other photos. Which helped distinguish it from the other Riviera Theatre in nearby Three Rivers Michigan, which was also pictured in the Group with a similar marquee. The two towns are 36 miles apart. Some group members had no recollection of the Riviera in Niles. As it closed over 50 years ago.

There was no description with the tickets photo, other than this: “These may jog some memories of the Niles population….a long gone establishment from the ‘Good old Days’ in downtown. 2 tickets for the Riviera Theater.”

Here is a link to the Group. Copy & paste to view.

I made a mistake. The Riviera opened in 1920, not 1930. It was built by John Baumann.

Donna Ochenryder whose photos were added, worked at the Riviera 1948 to 1951 as an Usher and finished working for Eleanor Baumann in the popcorn/candy stand.

Just added an incredible photo of The Court Theatre in 1927, a year or two before being torn down to build the Dominion Theatre. Credit: Stockholm Transport Museum Photo, courtesy of the Who Knows East – Old Photographs Facebook page. Since The Court Theatre has no CT page, and occupied the same site and address as the Dominion Theatre, I posted it here.

adamghost, your above link does not work. Do you have a way to download the photo and post it in the Photos Section instead?

Below copy courtesy of Matt Hyde via The Denver Eye Facebook page. (Under a vintage pic I also re-posted to the Isis photos Section.)

Had the largest Wurlitzer in the world for a short time (1915-1917). Of course, when Wurlitzer built a larger one in California in 1917, Denver said ‘this will not do’, and had Wurlitzer build an even larger one for the Municipal Auditorium in 1918. Both consoles survive today. IIRC, the ISIS console is now in California, and the MA console is in Oregon.
