The Troy Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Troy Theatre was built by the Mark Strand Theatre Company of New York. It has been said that the Troy Theatre had a more elegant interior than nearby Proctor’s Theatre in Troy. The main lobby featured a grand marble staircase. The Troy Theatre was one of the city of Troy’s main movie palaces from the 1920’s. By 1941 it was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. Later it was operated by Fabian Theatres chain and continued through the 1960’s.

A victim of urban renewal, the city condemned several blocks, one of which included the theatre, in the very early-1970’s. It was unceremoniously demolished. In the urban renewal plan, River Sreet was re-routed and now covers over the plot of land where the Troy Theatre sat.
