Nice exterior shot with marquee.
Maybe CT Admins can update both now.
Address: 110-112 N. 2nd Street.
Year Opened: 1920.
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.
1934 photo added courtesy of Penny Meyers Churchill.
This from Wally Eberhard: “That’s me standing in front of my dad, Ray Eberhard, Ready manager…and my big bro Jack is kneeling at far right.”

Elevators and restrooms being added.
Handicap access etc., in keeping with the historical aspect of the theatre.
Apparently small theatre rooms and a bar too.

Since The Court Theatre has no CT page, and occupied the same site and address as the Dominion Theatre, I posted it here.
