Open since at least 11/8/1923 when a Wurlitzer organ (opus 729) was installed. This theatre is listed as operating in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

Checked the google aeriel and street photos – this is a real mystery. On both sides of the street it’s all very old buildings none of which looks like a former theatre. To one side of the large building on the south of the street is a small long narrow building which could possibly have been a theatre lobby which leads back to a vacant lot behind the large building to the east. Possibly that was the location of the auditorium but it’s impossible to tell. At any rate I can see no auditorium at this location.

I visited this area a couple years ago. I found Dino’s Pizza at 837 Elizabeth Ave., Reve Health Food Store at 839 Elizabeth Ave., which means the vacant lot next to the health food store would be 841. This building has been demolished.

The royal was just before Smith St. It was knocked down and the empty lot is still there hidden by a fence.
