The Eagle Theatre, a non-profit organization, is located at 208 Vine Street in Downtown Hammonton. The historic theatre was originally constructed in 1914 for the showing of silent motion pictures. The theatre closed in 1927. This June, renovations were completed and the theatre has been reborn as the premier center for motion pictures and the arts in South Jersey.

Mr. Litke originally used the O'Donnell Building for his motion pictures. The building was too warm in the summer, so in 1912 he built a tent and called it the Eagle Theatre. The bricks and mortor Eagle Theatre, replacing the tent, was built in 1914 and closed in 1927. Located near 2nd avenue.
