Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

A moving picture house operated at this site from at least 1915 (though possibly as early as 1912 or earlier) until 1923 or later. It appears that the theatre was gone by 1929.

The Atlas Theatre is listed in the American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915 and is in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1926 edition with a seating capacity listed as 450.

The status of the Atlas Theatre need to be changed to Closed/Demolished as a new building was errected on the site in 1929.

The former New Progress/Progress Theatre was located adjacent to the north of the Atlas Theatre at 1892-1894 Third Avenue (demolished around 1957).
