Can’t the Google Street view be re-adjusted to show the building? The person who “fixed” it must have been drunk at the time.

The church has a slideshow with several views of the interior:

The one you saw on Broad and Orange is not the original TREAT THEATRE, the original one was demolished in the early 80’s to make way for the new building for the phone company. The owners of the TREAT then moved to where you cand find it now. Now, for the spanish CARIBE moving to the ELWOOD it was on January 1st in 1972 on a saturday. When to see the 1st showing of a double spanish feature. What wonderful memories, it was great.

Passed Broad & Orange today. Marquee reads Cameo. Their recording announces “Cameo Twin Theatres”. One straight, the other gay.

Thanks for the clarification. I found a Treat theater with the following address:
TREAT THEATRE
469 BROAD ST
NEWARK, NJ 07102
973/621-7622
Is this the same one that you believe to be on Orange?

This was not the Cameo that operated as a porn house… that was the former Treat theater on Orange Street. The Cameo on Elizabeth Ave. spent several years as a Spanish language theater under the name Teatro Caribe. In the mid seventies changing demographics caused then-owner Dick Nathan to move the Spanish operation across town to the Elwood theater on Broadway.
