The Bridesburg Theater was a victim of the Great Depression and closed in 1933. The theater was purchased by the Rohm & Haas Company and converted to a company gymnasium in 1942. The building was demolished in 1967 and is now a well manicured lawn adjacent to Dow Chemical Company parking lots. (Dow Chemical bought Rohm & Haas in 2009).
