The Sparta Theatre opened in 1951, and was built on the site of the Grand Theatre, which had been destroyed by fire.

The same fate fell on the Sparta Theatre in 1986.

The Sparta was part of the Turner-Farrar theater chain in the early sixties.

The introduction says that the Sparta Theatre was built on the site of the Grand Theatre, which had burned down, but the address we show for the Grand Theatre is 141 Broadway, which would across the street from the Sparta. What gives?

I remember my Dad used to stop by there if going by sometimes on an occasional evening and he’d get take out popcorn for us to have for watching the new cable TV movies he had subscribed our household to. My mom worked the counter there, she said she knew J.D. from thence, when she was a “teenie bopper” cheerleader at Sparta High ~lol
