A 1922-23 Bloomsburg street and business directory lists a Victoria Theatre at 47 East Main Street. Was the Victoria Theatre an earlier theatre at this location before the Capitol Theatre was built?

Lost Memory commented about Folly Theatre on Mar 27, 2014 at 9:18 am

This theatre should have a previous name of Pastime Theatre. The Pastime Theatre was remodeled and opened as the Folly Theatre in December of 1917.

Published in the Drumright Evening Derrick on December 21, 1917.

The Folly theater, formerly the Pastime, under the management of Harry LeVan, acting for the Barbour agency, has undergone complete remodeling and now has the appearance of an up to date theater. A new floor has been laid, the ceiling newly plastered, seats rearranged, new scenery installed and the building well heated.

The Folly will be run strictly as a tab theater, although good pictures will be shown in connection with the shows. Jewell’s Golden Jubilee company will play a week’s engagement at the Folly, with a complete change of program each day.

Thanks for the update, Peter. There is no change on the DOB website either, so apparently the owner hasn’t submitted a new plan yet.

An opening ad for an Odeon Theatre in Shawnee was published in the Shawnee News on July 2, 1908. The ad states that The Odeon was formerly The Grand.

This was published in the same newspaper.

The Odeon, on East Main street next to Roy Jenkin’s stand, is putting on some of the best moving pictures in Shawnee. The present management is determined to make the place a paying proposition for the future, and consequently no expense is being spared for the present. The best of everything obtainable is shown here.

LeRoy Bickle has returned to Ardmore after an absence of a month and will open the Theatorium next Friday on West Main Street. He has purchased the fixtures of the moving picture show formerly operated up the street and will move them to the Theatorium. Bickle operated a successful show here before and during the fall and winter hopes to do a greater business than he did last winter.
