Originally built in 1914 as the Clinton Theatre, it had a dirt floor. The 1941 edition of Film Daily Yearbook gives a seating capacity for the Clinton Theatre as 540. It was renovated and reopened August 25, 1949 and was given an Art Deco style façade.
Now known as the Cinema Theater, it became the oldest, continuously run, single-screen theater in Rochester, NY. The lease came up for renewal in January 2021 and the operators decided to close permanently in February 2021.
New owners took over and following renovations it is set to reopen in late-spring 2022 as a dine-in theatre name ROC Cinema.
