Princeton Theater

There was a Princeton Theater on W. State Street before World War II. That theater burned to the ground in the 1940’s. The newer Princeton Theater was built by Affiliated Theaters Inc. of Indianapolis, IN on W. Broadway in 1948. A circa 1980’s photo is below.

It was closed by AMC in July 2011.

It is now an AMC operation. The City of Princeton is offering another theater operator $200,000 in incentives to build another theater as the city is fearful that AMC will close this theater in about a year: View link

The city (presumably) has made a real effort to undo the godawful remodel, and this has been open as a performing arts venue since at least 2016. It is home to the Broadway Players. When I came through, the marquee was advertising ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’, but I’m not sure if that was the film or a stage production.

Note that the interior picture is of the wrong theater. It is obviously not an auditorium built after WWII. Probably belongs with the previous Princeton.
