Here is the homepage for the Trinity Square Repertory Theater:

If you click on “about us” and then “Lederer Theater” you’ll find the entire history of the theater.

I did some research on the state register of historic places. Not many theaters listed, although some are in downtown zones designated as state historic districts. The Brook, however, has its own listing.

See page 2. Hopefully this means that the state will do all it can to assure proper preservation.

Old photo on this link:

Probably from 1938, from the titles on the marquee.

Photo #14 on this website shows the marquee in 1943.

Not exactly the picture that I was looking for, here is a link to a fairly recent b&w photo before the restoration.

There are many articles in the local Princeton press about the theater, just finding the one with the nice color photo is proving to be a challenge.

The Kimball theatre homepage doesn’t talk about the history.

Charles:
thanks for the link.
This link details the award that Westfield received. Two pictures (before & after) of the Rialto are at the bottom: View link

I had a link with a beautiful modern photo but now can’t locate it. I’ll keep searching.

I haven’t been inside the Garden since the renovation, as I prefer the movies shown nearby in Montgomery. That location, however, is a non interesting strip mall theater.

I haven’t visited this theater yet, but Roberts Theatres does a great job at running its other theater, the Wellmont in Montclair.

Saw a movie here in November. Great local support from the community. Cinema Treasures book on sale in the lobby. Thanks to the book for pointing out some great architectural details.

Lobby is very plain, but the theater itself is quite nice. Balcony still closed but the curtain looks new as do the seats. Great Dolby sound. Claims to be the only first run single screen theater in the area. Only 6 people for a Saturday night showing of The Incredibles; I would hope that the local market provides more support than this.

Very unique experience. There is no wall separating the concession area from the theater. You can really smell the popcorn during the movie.

My wife & I just saw “Ray” here. What a fantastic theater. The owner is quite proud of his theater, as he should be. The theater is in prime condition.

Does anyone know where to get the Thursday night movie schedule online? The link on the theater’s homepage is never updated. Emails to the theater are undeliverable. Seems like the only method is to call them and hope for an answer.
