Cameo Theatre

A single screen theatre located on Clinton Avenue in Rochester, New York. A great neighborhood theatre that opened and closed during my youth. It went from a full time theatre to closing and then reopening on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

It was operated by the Schine Circuit Inc.

Thanks for listing this theatre Howard. My grandmother used to tell me about going to the movies here, and I remember the closed down theatre building sitting on Clinton Ave. up until is destruction.

I remember reading somewhere, perhaps in the Theatre Historial Society’s publication “Marquee” many years ago, of how a security guard accidentally turned on the vertical sign and someone was able to snap a picture of it. This was around 1965 and supposedly the vertical hadn’t been lit up since 1949 when the theatre closed. I’m sad, but not surprised, to read here that it has been torn down.
