The Crescent Theater was locally owned. For a short period of time, prior to closing for good, the theater was run by Norm Freeborn and Johnny Brogan, union projectionists from the State Theater.In addition, they ran the State Theater when long time owner Morris Markley called it quits.

The Cresent was a very well built, progessionally operated neighborhood theatre. A classic feature was the illuminated glass block wall that separated the auditorium from the tiny lobby. It was well maintained until it’s closing as a movie theatre in 1959. The New Castle Playhouse thrived for several years at this location.

There was an advertisement for a grand reopening in August 1940 in a local paper. Feature was “Rebecca”.
