Opened as Doughty’s Pier Theatre around 1900. Initially presented vaudeville and then silent movies. Survived a 1927 fire that destroyed much of the Boardwalk. When the Boardwalk was rebuilt and moved east (closer to the ocean), the theatre’s entrance and seating had to be changed to the opposite side of the building. Added a sound system in 1929. By 1931 it was operated by Hunt’s Theaters Inc. By 1941 it was operated by the Strand Theater Co.
Operated continuously until 1989, when it was sold to a paper company. The building burned to the ground on June 12, 1990.
