Excellent find, considering the proliferation of “classic” 1990s mall theaters being posted recently.

Article describing its current use and brief history:
Chatham Cinema to get new marquee.
Not sure if this was installed yet.
Great photos on this link:
This website is absolutely incredible.
Here is their photographic listing for the Ambler:
Interesting article regarding the history:
As promised, here is the color photo and interesting article on the history of this theater.
Original comment should read “western”. My apologies. It is easy to forget that Florida has two coasts.
Here is the homepage for the Trinity Square Repertory Theater:
If you click on “about us” and then “Lederer Theater” you’ll find the entire history of the theater.
Here is the homepage:
I did some research on the state register of historic places. Not many theaters listed, although some are in downtown zones designated as state historic districts. The Brook, however, has its own listing.
See page 2. Hopefully this means that the state will do all it can to assure proper preservation.
Old photo on this link:
Probably from 1938, from the titles on the marquee.
Photo #14 on this website shows the marquee in 1943.
I just noticed, there is no link on this listing.
Here is the theater’s homepage:
Not exactly the picture that I was looking for, here is a link to a fairly recent b&w photo before the restoration.
There are many articles in the local Princeton press about the theater, just finding the one with the nice color photo is proving to be a challenge.
This link provides the history of the theater.
The Kimball theatre homepage doesn’t talk about the history.
thanks for the link.
This link details the award that Westfield received. Two pictures (before & after) of the Rialto are at the bottom: View link
This article talks about the 1997 renovations:
I had a link with a beautiful modern photo but now can’t locate it. I’ll keep searching.
I haven’t been inside the Garden since the renovation, as I prefer the movies shown nearby in Montgomery. That location, however, is a non interesting strip mall theater.
I haven’t visited this theater yet, but Roberts Theatres does a great job at running its other theater, the Wellmont in Montclair.

Saw a movie here in November. Great local support from the community. Cinema Treasures book on sale in the lobby. Thanks to the book for pointing out some great architectural details.
