Fort Plain Theatre, NY in 1930

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Fort Plain Theatre was built in 1911 as a legitimate theatre and vaudeville house. By 1914 movies were also being screened. The theatre was under the management of the Smalley circuit by the 1920’s, and became Smalley’s Fort Plain Theatre. By 1941 it was Smalley’s Theatre.

Smalley’s Theatre was still open in 1950.

Is this the place that became “Ernie’s Pussycat Theatre” in the 70’s?

Sorry, I think Smalley’s in St. Johnsville became Ernie’s.
