The address for this is 102 N Main St. It currently serves as the American Legion building. Google Maps does not have a street view of this, but Bing does.

Appears to be demolished now.

This was listed as the Cozy Corner Theatre in the 1914/15 AMPD.

The building at 818 S Broad St is listed as the Majestic Theatre in the 1920 city directory.

Roger Katz commented about Grand Opera House on Apr 21, 2015 at 9:35 am

“Salem Lecture Hall” and “Opera House” are two separate listings in “Jno. B. Jeffery’s Guide and Directory to the Opera Houses, Theatres, Public Halls, Bill Posters, Etc. of the Cities and Towns of America” from 1883 and “Henry C. Miner’s American Dramatic Directory for the Season of 1887-‘88”.

The Salem Opera House stood at 5 Walnut Street.

The article at http://www.nj.com/salem/index.ssf/2014/12/salem_county_rewind_one_of_salem_citys_popular_movie_theaters_blacksmith_closes_up_shop_moves_out_of.html indicates the Fenwick has been demolished.

The building in the photo linked above is at 134 W Broadway, not 165 W Broadway like the address on this page says.

Roger Katz commented about La Ray Theatre on Apr 21, 2015 at 9:12 am

Listed in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory as the Le Ray Theatre at 1 Walnut St. Currently a grocery store stands on that spot, but I cannot determine if it is the old theatre building or a newer building.

Correct address is 2 Church Street

Roger Katz commented about Town Theatre on Apr 9, 2015 at 3:58 pm

This was the Trent. I was in New Rochelle looking through old city directories and the Town and the Trent both had the address of 600 Main Street in their times. It was also called the Cue at one point as well.

Roger Katz commented about New Egypt Theatre on Apr 7, 2015 at 9:28 am

The Isis opened on August 27, 1921. It changed its name to the New Egypt in 1950. After closing the theatre became a furniture store until it burned down.

Roger Katz commented about Forum Theatre Arts Center on Apr 6, 2015 at 1:33 pm

It appears this theatre is no longer open in the traditional sense. They have no movies or live shows scheduled. The website states it is available for long or short term rentals.

Roger Katz commented about Liberty Theatre on Apr 6, 2015 at 8:01 am

OK – further research indicates the address of 1292 State Street is correct, which indicates this theatre is demolished. The 1242 State Street building that resembles a movie theatre was actually the West End Bowling Alley.

Roger Katz commented about Matawan Theatre on Apr 5, 2015 at 2:45 pm

The address needs to be changed at the top of this page. The Matawan Theatre building in the photo above is clearly visible in the Google street view. The marquee says “Mullaney & Associates Physical Therapy” which has an address of 127 Main Street.

Roger Katz commented about Paramount Theatre on Apr 5, 2015 at 11:33 am

The Broadway Theatre is listed in the 1914/15 American Motion Picture Directory at 135 Broadway. That would make it across the street from the Paramount and likely a previous name for the Strand. Anyone know the truth behind this?

Roger Katz commented about Ritz Theatre on Apr 3, 2015 at 12:38 pm

Listed in the 1914/15 AMPD as the Hippodrome.

Roger Katz commented about Apollo Theatre on Apr 3, 2015 at 9:04 am

I think the theatre may still stand. Check out the Salvation Army building, which gives its address as 242 Martin Luther King Drive. It looks like it could have been an old theatre. Additionally, property tax records from the Jersey City assessor’s office list the official address of this building as 242-246 MLK Drive. 246 was the address of the Apollo Theatre.

The former Jackson Avenue is now known as Martin Luther King Drive.
