Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Bayonne Opera House was opened in 1907. It was eventually renamed the Victory Theatre when it became a cinema. The Victory Theatre was listed as open in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook but had definitely closed by the mid-1970’s at the latest.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

In the attached link, photo #62 (midway down the leftmost column) shows an old postcard from 1909.

1907 theater photo link in earlier comment is not the Opera House, but a different theater altogether, at a different location in Bayonne, NJ.

From the Army’s Weekly Yank, dated 11/5/43:

The Victory theater in Bayonne, N.J. is cutting out films and going on a two-a-day vaudeville basis.

Well, they were far away from the wives. What do you expect?
