The New Salem Theatre was opened in 1936. By the mid-1940’s it had been renamed Preston Theatre. It was closed in the late-1950’s, and was demolished in the 1980’s.

A walking tour of downtown Salem gives the address of the modern City Administration Building that replaced the Preston Theatre as 400 N. Iron Street, but it’s possible that the theater was actually around the corner on 4th Street.

Comments about the Preston Theatre on a community forum page say that it closed in the 1960s, but all the movies people mention having seen there date from no later than the late 1950s. I think it might have closed before that decade ended. It was apparently demolished in the 1980s.
