Gerald, I talked with a lady that knew about the building that was used for the John St. Theater. The building was nondescript and recalls it being an Amvets Club type building and not really a theater per se. After reading about the old theaters of the 1920’s and 30’s, it seems that a lot of theaters were no more than halls that sported a screen and a portable projector. From her description, this particular theater was of that genre. She believes the building was razed (as you state) many decades ago and possibly in the 50’s.
