This theatre still remains, or at least the lobby building does. It is on the corner of South Cedar Street and East 8th Street.

The Riviera burnt down. The organ probably went with it.

Using Bing’s overhead view it appears that 114 N Second St is a more accurate address than 216.

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.

“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.

Roger Katz commented about La Ray Theatre on Apr 21, 2015 at 7:12 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.

Roger Katz commented about Town Theatre on Apr 9, 2015 at 1:58 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.
