Ocean One has attracted visitors since 1906 when Captain John Young opened his famous Million Dollar Pier at this location. He even lived at the end of the pier in an elaborate marble villa with state of the art Edison-designed pastel lighting and garden sculptures.

This theater will close down this August. A number of small theaters have closed recently in NJ or are in financial distress.

old post card. Incidently, I have a post card for another Shubert Theatre on Washington Street. Any insight on that one?

How did the theatre fare during the recent flood?

Is this the theater featured near the end of “Ask the Dust”?
I know that most of the movie was shot in South Africa but the imdb lists LA as another filming location. Perhaps the interior shots were somewhere else but there is a brief shot of a Warner marquee.

teecee commented about Brunswick Theater on Apr 6, 2007 at 11:20 am

“By the end of 1976, the Lincoln and all of the other downtown Trenton movie houses were shuttered, deemed obsolete in an era that saw residents and theaters alike desert the inner city for the suburbs.
Only the Brunswick, once a haven for lovers of foreign film, was resurrected briefly in 1979 on the edge of Trenton near Lawrence as an “adult” movie theater. The days when you could share a cup of espresso in the lobby and discuss a movie were long gone.”

Still open in the early 1970s:

“If you wanted to see a movie in the Trenton area at the beginning of the 1970s, you had a choice: In New Jersey, it was the Mayfair, Lincoln, Trent, Greenwood and Brunswick in Trenton; Capitol Plaza Cinema in Ewing; Eric Lawrenceville in Lawrence; Prince in West Windsor; and the Hights in Hightstown.”

According to The Times of Trenton article “Trenton’s Bijou days are bygone” 5/24/1993, the Centre was at 422 Centre Street and it is now Adams Rental. A web search finds http://www.adamsrental.com/ still an active business.
