The Bailey Theatre opened in 1915 as Paulsboro’s first theatre. In 1918, purchased by Alfred W. Hill and renamed the Hill Theatre. When Hill built a new Hill Theatre, he renamed this one Boro and ran both for many years.

This theatre is listed in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

“Paulsboro was now changing from a residential town to an industrial town. The first movie was shown on the second floor of the Bailey Building. Movies were shown in the "Auditorium” twice a week. Friday was dance night and the young men brought in girls from the surrounding areas because there was a shortage of girls in town. A law was passed stating that movies weren’t allowed on the second floor and Mr. Bailey built a movie house which opened to the public on April 29, 1915.“
