Listed as the Montrose Theater in Film Daily Yearbooks from at least 1943 with a seating capacity of 325 (the only theatre in town).

The 1941 F.D.Y. lists the only theatre in town as the Ideal Theater with 310 seats. Could this be the same theatre?

If it was the only one, maybe they didn’t have a choice. Don’t forget that there’s one lady out there who saw “The Sound of Music” 962 times, I think.

While doing research on a theatre in Endicott, I came across references to a Colonial Theater (around 1905) and an Ideal Theater (from around 1923-1933) in Montrose. Oddly enough, these were the same names as the theatre in Endicott I was researching, exactly before and after.

This seems likely to have been originally the Ideal Theater, since 1923 is about when the references to it first start popping up.
