thanks for the tip.

The Park Theatre is indeed listed in the 1944, 1951 & 1956 Film Daily Yearbooks with a seating capacity of 900, 920 & 920 respectively.
It is NOT listed in the 1970 Film Daily Yearbook under Redstone; perhaps they closed it shortly after the riots.

there was a Park theater operating at that location at least into the early seventies. It was operated by Redstone/General Amusements and most likely closed due to the economic turndown in Newark following the infamous riots.
