No mention of the theatre in this article but you can see the marquee in the top photo. I’m glad they are considering revitalizing this street. It is not vibrant like the rest of the town is.

I went in yesterday as I saw the auditorium from 2 streets away and thinking it was that or a warehouse, I decided to press on and yes it was built in 1925 as the stone says on the top. I asked the young usher outside if I could have a small tour and he asked if “I was one of those.” I replied yes, I’m a human being. He looked puzzled and then showed me the basement. From the lobby, the hall down to the theatres is long and sloping and ends at a small wall. There are 2 stadiums, one on either side and he let me in to show me the stage that’s still intact. It goes to the right and ends at the wall and continues into the other theater. The other theatres are smaller and are before the stadium ones. He said the decorative elements are still untouched and there’s a drop ceiling protecting them. The auditorium ceiling from outside is quite huge.

probably they cut up the larger screen into two, or added a fourth one.

With the new rockaway theatre opening sometime later this year, will this theatre survive?

A Moller organ, opus 4288, was installed in the Madison theater in 1925.

Architect for the “renovations” is Johannes Hoffman.

Listed in the 1/17/91 edition of the Star Ledger as a triplex. Additional screen added in the 90s.

The marquee on the Madison is not the original. The theatre features two stadium-style auditoriums, created from the original stadium area in the back of the house. The stage is still intact.

Spencer: I live in NJ and while I haven’t been inside the theater I have seen it from the outside. Where did you get your information from? I find the Clearview website to be lacking of any historical information whatsoever for the majority of its theaters. The Clearview theaters that I have visited don’t even have historic photos in their lobbies.
