The Monroe Theatre was torn down in the summer of 2003 to make way for a new theater building. The exact address was/is 34 Millpond Parkway. Searching “Monroe Theater” on the Times Herald-Record(www.recordonline.com) will bring up many articles about the long saga related to this theater site. After the Monroe Theatre was demolished construction on the new building struggled on for years. The new theater eventually opened but is now in danger of closure due to owner Norman Adie facing federal fraud charges.

The March 12, 1949, issue of Boxoffice said that the Monroe Theatre was opening that month. The house was originally owned and operated by Walter and Carlisle Neithold, who also operated a theater at Goshen, New York.

Looking through Google Maps, I followed the entire course of Millpond Parkway (it’s fairly short, running parallel to the main street). I did not see any building which resembled a older cinema, however at the corner of Millpond and Smith Field Court (Just south of the Free Library) is a building labeled Monroe Cinema. No street view available here but from the air it appears to be a modern building, quite new. Perhaps they demolished the old theater and put up a new multiplex recently.
