Previous Names: Colonial Theatre, Beverly Theatre, Telenews Theatre
The Colonial Theatre opened on October 21, 1914. The building was completely remodeled in 1931, with a shiny black Vitrolite and nickel-silver exterior. On August 21, 1934 it was renamed Beverly Theatre, named after the daughter of Mike Barovic, the manager of the theatre.
The Beverly Theatre name was replaced by the Telenews Theatre on September 15, 1945. The new owners remodeled the theatre and gave it a new neon marquee. The Telenews lasted until 1949. For the most part, it showed newsreels, travelogues and documentaries. On June 23, 1949, it became the Broadway Theatre, owned by L.E. Allen. I am unsure how long it ran as the Broadway Theatre.
The building was demolished in 1988 and the site became a parking lot.
