Open since at least 1920 when a Kimball organ was installed, this theatre made the New York Times on 2/17/1932 when the local police record sentenced three schoolboys, charged with having broken the lock of the theatre’s exit door to see a movie, to receive ten lashes each and pay a $5 fine. The officer then descended from the bench and administered the flogging himself with a borrowed strap.
The theatre is still listed in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.
The building was converted into housing for the elderly in 2013.
