good find lostmemory. I should have checked the news link. Do you want to do the honors and add the Laurel/Criterion to the database?

In 1941 and 1943 editions of F.D.Y. there are 3 theatre listed for Bridgeton, NJ. (non are currently on the Cinema Treasures database)
Criterion 1,350 seats
Majestic 500 seats
Stanley 1,550 seats

Strangely, in the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. there is no listing for Bridgeton or the next town alphabetically Burlington!

My 1951 FDY lists a Laurel Theatre in Bridgeton (no street address). Cinematour.com lists the Laurel Theatre at N. Laurel street. Too close for comfort! Good chance they are the same, this being a small town.
