The Victoria Theater was one of two theaters located in Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania and was located at W. 3rd Street, between Pear Street and Maple Street. It was an early design of William H. Lee whose first theater design was the Victoria in Shamokin, PA.
Mr. Lee Started his career as an architect with the Shamokin Lumber Company. The theater was built around 1920 by Chamberlain Amusement Enterprises and was later operated by Victoria Amusement Enterprises which also operated theaters under this name in Shamokin and Mahanoy City. It was a large theater and like the other Victoria Theaters in the group it had a very large screen which has been added in a 1953 update.
The theater was closed in the late 60s or early 70s and was demolished to make way for a drive-thru bank. The end of the Victoria was the end of motion picure exhibition in Mt. Carmel since the smaller State Theater had been demolished years earlier.
