Listed as operating prior to 1941, the Garden Theatre was located on the corner of E. Main Street and N. Jay Street. It was a half block from the Roxy Theatre. It was still in operation in 1979 but has since been closed.

The former Garden Theatre has been converted into Government offices.

A 500-seat Garden Theatre is listed in the 1927 Film Daily Year Book but not in the 1926 edition, so it could have originally opened around that time. The 1926 volume lists only a Dreamland for Lock Haven. The 1927 also adds the 500-seat Martin for Lock Haven. No specific addresses are given for any of the three theatres. No seating capacity is given for Dreamland, whose name suggests birth as a nickelodeon or penny arcade.

Always Good to see a CLINT EASTWOOD marquee. Lee Marvin’s Violent “POINT BLANK” played here in 1967.

The original building that housed the Garden Theater still exists. It was renovated and now houses the Clinton County offices such as Domestic Relations, Child Protective Services, etc. The interior retains a three story atria where the seating used to be and also contains memorabilia from the theater and city. Worth a look if you are in area. So is the Roxy Theater, its competitor for years, right down the street. Restored (especially the murals), expanded and technologically updated, it is currently in operation with three screens. The Martin theater is gone, no traces physically.
