The Victor Theater was an early Nickelodeon style theater that was inserted into a mid-nineteenth century structure at 716 Hamilton Street, Allentown, PA. in the early days of theater construction. From what I have been told by a senior citizen relative, you entered through a narrow entry located on either side of a ticket booth, and came in under the screen. This person says that there was always a large cat on the premises to help control the theater’s rat population which you often felt running around at your feet during shows.

The building was absorbed, along with the adjoining buildings, into one large structure that was modernized about 1928 for the headquarters of Lehigh Portland Cement.
