Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Opened as the Belington Theatre in 1939, and a year later it was renamed Seneca Theatre. Seating was listed as 240. The Seneca Theatre was closed by 1958.

Any additional information on the Belington/Seneca Theatre would be appreciated.

This house was mentioned as the Seneca Theatre in the January 24, 1945, issue of The Film Daily. It had just been sold to C. F. Sanders by John Panapoulos.

A Belington movie house called the Grand is mentioned in the January 15, 1928, issue of the same publication, and I’ve found a Grand Theatre mentioned in The Moving Picture World as early as September 14, 1918. I don’t know if it was the same theater that later became the Bellington/Seneca, or a different theater. The Seneca’s building does look old enough to have been around in the 1910s or even earlier.
