Opened in 1915, in 1923 a Kimball organ was installed. (incorrectly attributed to Bardentown, NJ) This theatre is still listed as operating in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.

Any additional information on this theater would be greatly appreciated.

Demolished, replaced by a small apartment building. Correct spelling of the street name is “Farnsworth.”

Originally opened in 1915. Subsequently purchased by JB Fox and operated into the 1950s.

This book about Bordentown states that the theater was first the Bordentonian, then the Fox and last the Sharon. I’m not sure if this link is going to hold up:

The name of the theater was changed from Fox to Sharon in February 1955.

What is the source for that information?

It is still listed as the Fox Theater in the 1955 Film Daily with 896 seats.

I wonder if they print those a year ahead, like almanacs.

I’m not sure. It might be printed in January and that would explain why it is usually behind a year in openings and closings of theaters.
