Replacing an earlier theatre destroyed by fire, the Trimble Opera House was opened December 31, 1869. In 1873 it was renamed Leland Opera House and was one of Pearl Street’s many theatres. The Opera House was converted for vaudeville/movies in 1906 and was renamed the Leland Theatre. It remained a popular theater in Albany until destroyed by fire in the late-1950’s/early-1960’s. It was demolished thereafter. Pictures I’ve seen of the fire damage show a double-balcony house, with the balconies supported by pillars.
