From the photo of the former Hartford Theatre, the building is recognizable as the house designed by architect Erwin G. Fredrick for Frank Walters and M.H. Scheidler, operators of the Orpheum and Jefferson theaters in Hartford City.

Mr. Fredrick’s rendering of the proposed theater was displayed in the “Just Off the Boards” feature of Boxoffice, August 17, 1946.

The Hartford Theater was a rebuild of a long-closed Dawn Theater. It was magnificent! Althought it was clearly a movie theater, there was a stage and in the early years there were live presentations of various types. One was Jay Zee, a hypnotist.
