The caption of a c. 1912 photo of the Crown Theatre on page 48 of Manchester, by Robert B. Perreault (Google Books preview), says that the Crown was renamed the Variety Theatre in 1955 and continued to operate under that name until closing in 1961.

The Crown Theatre is listed at 97 Hanover Street in the 1920 Manchester City Directory.

Photo is very artistic and evocative. Lights look like crystal. Blade signs are strange.

The Crown building is the still existing Odd Fellows Hall. The 4th floor auditorium area is now used for offices and rehearsal space by the NH Philharmonic Orchestra.

Good, building still there. Looks like Child and Family Services (Teen Resource Center) now.
