The Park Palace Theatre is listed in the 1926 & 1927 Film Daily Yearbook’s. In the 1930 edition of Film Daily Yearbook it has been re-named Glory Theatre.

In 1932 a c/o was issued to a theatre at this address. A new stage and dressing rooms were added for a vaudeville theatre. The words ‘No Motion Pictures to be Displayed’ is written on the c/o.

It seems that movies never came back to this building and has since been demolished, as an apartment building now stands on the site.

Apparently the movie house at this address was known as Park Palace longer than Glory Theater. What establishes what name it is listed under?

The general ‘rule of thumb’ with Cinema Treasures is to list the name and statistics that the theatre is last known to have.

Both spellings are correct. Theatre is a variant of theater. (“theatre” spelling comes from the French)

It’s generally accepted that we don’t add Theater after drive-in names, for example.

So, can we agree that the Glory Theatre presented theater?
