Originally this was the Tivoli Theatre, operating prior to 1930, and continued with this name, operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Wilber-Kincey until at least 1947. By 1950, it had been renamed Rogers Theatre, and continued into the 1950’s.

The Rogers Theatre was closed by 1957. It was located next door to the Charles Theatre.

I heard this comment about this theatre in it’s last days: You need to take two sticks with you when you go there. One to hold up the seat and one to fight off the rats. I personally have seen a rat go across the floor the only time I ever went there.

This picture is the l wrong location .Rember seeing it when ti was an insurance building, I could not believe it could be a theater cause it was small. The back had the left over exit door. My dad ran a business at Frank Leu building in the early 71.My dad claim that the owner tried to sell it to him. He told me that the screen was big as 4-bed sheets I would explore the ex-theater building .My dad told me that the bathroom was downstairs.Years later the building was a Chinese all you can eat restaurant.I went in there and the bathroom downstairs was sitll existing and being used .I don’t know what it looked like as a theater. No pics, but, it could have had stadium seating, dug from the ground to make it bigger.An ex-friend told me when he went as a kid he would take a stick to fight off the rats,
