Just added a couple photos of a coming attractions herald from March 1942 for the theatre which lists its address as 645 W. 120th Street. Coming attractions herald from the Ridge Theatre from March 1942. Advertising movies from March 14 – March 21, 1942. Double features of Keep ‘em Flying & Moonlight in Hawaii, Smilin’ Through & Small Town Deb. Ending with Sergeant York March 19 – 21. The Ridge may have been connected to the State Theatre, Roseland Theatre and Parkway Theatre as the back of the herald shows the schedule for those nearby theatres.

In August, 1934 it was still advertising itself as the Punch and Judy. Check photo section for an advertising handbill from the Punch and Judy Theatre from August, 1934 (based on films and perpetual calendar dating) promoting upcoming films including “Secrets”, “Sorrell and Son”, “Little Man, What Now?” and “Cavalcade”.
