300 Adams Street,
No one has favorited this theater yet
Opened on 19th December 1921 with Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Coogan starring in “The Kid” plus “The Kineto Review”, a short subject.
The architectural firm of Herbst & Kuenzli of Milwaukee designed the building, which was described as ‘a quaint architecture that suggests it might have been copied from a 'gingerbread house’, the type of building one might find in central Europe'.
In the early days the stage was well used by stock companies who would come in and take over the theatre for an entire two weeks. There were also vaudeville shows that complemented the movie programme.
The Delft Theatre was still operating in 1974, but there was was talk at that time, that if and when a new theatre was built in the town the Delft Theatre would close and be demolished. I am presuming here that the latter happened.
If anyone has further information on this theatre, it would be appreciated.
