In 1905, the John A. Roebling Sons Company (who previously provided the steel cable for the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge) expanded their Trenton, NJ operation ten miles south along the Delaware River to a peach and potato farm near Florence. In addition to building a new factory complex, the company built a complete town with 750 homes, churches, a post office, parks and a movie theater for the workers. The theater was built in the 1910s/1920s. It is listed as operating in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.

By 1952 the company sold the plant. It was operated until 1974. Currently the plant site is a superfund cleanup site but the Village of Roebling is on the National Register of Historical Places.

Any further information on this theater would be greatly appreciated.

I think this theatre is the same as the auditorium.
