The 1,400-seat Franklin Theatre was opened on September 8, 1926 with Coleen Moore in “Ella Cinders”. It was equipped with a Style B, 2 manual Wurlitzer organ. For decades, this was the movie house of my parents and grandparents in Nutley, New Jersey. Sometime in the 1970’s, it was split into three separate screens. Whenever I visited my grandmother, I always loved going here. There was always zero advertising, very reasonable prices, and excellent service.
It closed around 2000 due to an issue with the building lease and sat empty and unused, though there were talks about reopening this absoutely wonderful theatre which came to nothing. It has been converted into apartments and retail use.
