Here is an item about the Central Theatre from the April 21, 1921, issue of Engineering News-Record:

“Newark—Theatre— H. Kappalon. c/o F. Grad, archt. and engrs.. 245 Springfield Ave., having plans prepared for brick and stone, brick foundation, at 505 Central Ave. About $150,000.”
An item in a later issue noted that Grad was revising the plans, and that the projected cost of the theater was now $100,000. Architect Frank Grad also designed Newark’s Stanley Theatre and collaborated on the design of Symphony Hall.

As a child, I went to the Central Theater in Newark, NJ, every Saturday afternoon from 1949-1954. What memories!
