Operated from 1919 to 1953, according to "Bob" in his listing of Cleveland, Ohio Theatres.

A Page theatre organ with 2 manuals and 7 ranks of pipes was installed in the late-1920’s. The organ survives in storage in Toledo, Ohio.

The Cleveland Public Library Digital Gallery has a photograph of the marquee, which may be viewed on their website.

I lived on Vega Avenue at West 30 Street. My parents and I walked to the Marvel Theater every Monday evening to watch a movie. They lived there from 1938 (when they got married) to 1948, when we moved. We watched a lot of Humphrey Bogart/George Raft gangster movies, but my favorite movies were westerns with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.
