Lost Memory commented about Theatorium Theatre on Apr 18, 2014 at 11:39 am

The Theatorium is mentioned in the South Amboy Citizen on October 30, 1909.

P. J. Monaghan is now pushing along the improvements to his building in which the Theatorium is held. It will add many seats to its capacity and increase the comforts of the patrons. The box office has been placed on the extreme left of the entrance and well forward of the front partition. This will be an advantage especially at times when there may be extra large patronage.

The Fifth Avenue Theatre has a brief mention in The Sun on March 22, 1914.

The Fifth Avenue Theatre will hereafter be devoted to the best of the moving pictures possible with the alternation of variety acts. This removes the last of the theatres to present a regular vaudeville programme below thirty fourth street.

Lost Memory commented about Plaza Theater on Apr 15, 2014 at 12:45 pm

The Velie Block must have been a good sized building. It housed the Plaza Theatre and a number of stores. The Plaza had its grand opening on July 31, 1917, and the stores advertised their opening that day also. The addresses for the stores opening on that day ranged from 49 to 57 Bridge Street. This theatre most likely used the 47 Bridge Street address when it first opened. In June of 1951, the Plaza is advertising with an address of No. 3 West William Street. At some point in time the location of the theatre entrance was probably changed.

Maybe the entrance was changed since 1919. The Plaza was located in the James L. Velie Block, corner of William and Bridge streets. The Plaza Theatre opened on July 31, 1917. Ad is in photo section.

Lost Memory commented about Plaza Theater on Apr 15, 2014 at 10:31 am

The earliest ads that I’ve seen for the Plaza are from 1917. In 1918, the theatre was damaged in a fire. The damage was repaired and the theatre reopened.

Published in the Evening Leader on August 3, 1918.

Plaza to open August 10. The Plaza Theatre which was damaged in the Viele Block fire will reopen about August 10. The interior of the theatre has been redecorated and refinished.

An article about the new Plaza Theatre was published on September 19, 1917. It includes a picture of the interior of the theatre but no specific opening date is given. The article states that the Plaza had 600 seats and no balcony.

The 3 W. William Street address above is given in the Film Daily Yearbook. A 1919 newspaper gives an address of 47 Bridge Street for the Plaza Theatre.
