Forgot to mention it originally had 1,000 seats and part of the description says the theatre was decorated in the style of a Moorish garden with miniature electric lights in the blue ceiling canopy giving the impression of a starry night sky.

Further investigation has resulted in discovering the building was erected in 1927 and was abandoned by the station in 1963 and the building was demolished in 1966.

The 5 May 1928 edition of Motion Picture News lists a Preston G Bradshaw as the original architect,which is also where the photos featured here are from.

There are exterior photos of this theatre in the Liebenberg and Kaplan papers at the University of Minnesota library which would indicate they were the architects in 1929.

The photo on this page is not what it says underneath.It is actually Eberson’s Riviera Theatre in Omaha,Nebraska which is now called Rose Blumkin Performing Arts Center.

This theatre is also listed at the Wolfsonian as an Eberson design with a date of 1947.Perhaps Sornik was an associate.

The Wolfsonian archives in Florida have a date for this theatre of 1965,so Drew Eberson would be the architect as John died in 1954.The Cheltenham Theatre was also Drew Eberson built somewhere between 1960 and 1963.
