This theater dates from at least the 1930’s, when it was used by the local Kiwanis club for movie fundraisers. Club member “Izzy” Hirshblond was the theater manager. Still listed as operating in the 1951 FDY. This theater burned down in 1962 as shown in the attached link.

This theatre was built around 1920 by Isadore (Izzy) Hirshblond. It had vaudeville and silent film in the early days. Today the site is part of the property of the Sovereign Bank. A photo, identical to my 1/22/06 post, can be found on page 61 of Images in America: Along the Toms River.
