This was one of the few newsreel theaters that survived the advent of TV, at least into the mid-1950’s. Not particularly distinguished architecturally, or in interior decor, but one of the glitziest facades I can remember with gold-mirror plating on the front of the building and an animated neon marquee almost as big as the building itself. Closed in the mid-1950’s and converted to office space in 1963. The 1st floor entrance is in use as a pizza centre.

1951 FDY lists an Embassy Theater at 347 Main Street. Is this the same theater?

My 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook gives a street address of the Pix Newsreel Theatre as 319 Main Street. The Embassy Theatre at 347 Main St had 1,915 seats.
