This former and quite small neighborhood movie house is located right next to the Windsor train station (and freight house). It is now an auction house/art gallery with a cafe inside. It was opened on December 9, 1922. In 1936 it was remodeled to the plans of architect Morris Rothenberg.

There are pilasters on the outside of the building and a garage door in the back for auction items.

Inside it’s quite small but seating must have been at least 150. There’s original pressed tin ceilings and moulding. There’s a stairwell when you walk in just past the bathrooms and it turns into a separate balcony square shape/second floor for storage, but the owner said it was built about ten years ago. If you walk up the stairs a few feet, you can touch the tin ceiling.
