The Loop Theatre was a new-build theatre replacing a previous retail structure which was razed. Jack O'Connell launched the Loop on October 21, 1938 according to trade publications. Virginia O'Connell took over the theatre upon Mr. O'Connell’s death in 1955 and ran it until its closure at the end of 1960. In an article, Mrs. O'Connell said that hoodlums had negatively impacted the theatre’s business in its latter years.
