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.

A Kohl theater organ was installed in the Cameo Theater in 1926.

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.
