All I know about this theatre is that in May of 1938 they had a neighborhood run of Constance Bennett in “Merrily We Live” and Bobby Breen in “Hawaii Calls”.

I find the use of the singular “LOEW” in the programs above interesting. I have not seen that elsewhere.

There was nothing unusual about “Loew” being used instead of “Loew’s,” especially during the lifetime of Marcus Loew. An apostrophe wasn’t really necessary in describing a theatre owned by his company. It was perfectly correct and common, for example, for a newspaper to report that “All Loew theatres will open an hour earlier this week,” or “The Loew Greeley has installed a new cooling plant,” or whatever.

In 1922 its seating capacity is listed as 2011 as a Loew house.
