Uncertain when it was built, but the large, very ornate Beaux-Arts style facade indicates before 1915. The Nixon Theatre seated approximately 2,500. Located adjacent to the Nixon Restaurant, on 7th Avenue downtown, across the street from Mellon Square Park.
The Nixon Theatre was demolished in June of 1950. Although it remained a legitimate stage house until the very end in 1950, at least one major movie played at the Nixon Theatre, when Cecil B. DeMille’s original "The Ten Commandments" was screened in 1924.
