“Another big event of 1909 was the disastrous fire at the armory. It was just past 8:00 PM on a sunday night when the first flames were spotted on the First Street side of the building. The department answered the alarm quickly, but felt that they could not save the building which streched from First to East Front Streets. About 9:00 PM help was summoned from Matawan H & L Co. All three companies arrived within the hour and did great work, helping Keyport to play at least nine streams of water on the blaze. At about 11:00 PM, the slate roof fell in, smothering as much of the fire. Eventually it was brought under control, however for secound time in this building, no cause of the fire was ever found. The Armony was later rebuilt, and renamed the Armory Theatre, eventualy becoming the Palace Theatre where a young Fred Astaire made his Vaudville Debute as a dancing Lobster in 1913. The building remained standing until 1973 at a which time it collapsed without warning into a pile of twisted beams and wires.” excerpt from http://www.keyportfd.org/historicalfires.htm

Thanks for posting this. I wasn’t sure that it was a movie theater. Not listed in the 1944 Film Daily Yearbook.

I passed by twice last week while on vacation and the museum was not open. Movies are still showing but they appear to be first run only.
