This theatre goes back to the early part of the 1900s. It was owned by John Bella. His name appears in the 1920 Trenton City directory as “Manager Motion Picture House” but the theatre itself isn’t listed. The theatre was located on Chestnut Avenue near Morris Avenue.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.
