My grandfather owned this theater in 1912. His name was Walker Whiting Vick and he lived at 16 Addison Avenue in Rutherford, New Jersey. My thanks to Lou Rugani for uploading this photo. The photo I have is a post card and a bit faded.

Build in 1911, the Criterion Theatre, a two floor wood structure with stucco exterior, opened in January 1912, with vaudeville acts arranged through Keith and Proctor, a major New York booking agent.
