The Woodbridge Theatre opened in 1921. It closed in July of 1927, shortly before the much larger State Theatre opened a few blocks down Main Street. The building is still standing, currently housing an auto parts store that also deals in sporting goods and television repair.

When you drive around back, you can still see the old stagehouse where the screen would be stored if a stage show was going on.

I just uploaded a couple of pictures of the former Woodbridge Theatre which I took while I was in the area last month, including one from the rear that shows the fly loft. While it is not that deep, I imagine it had a few other line sets to hang drops on. I believe the ventilation system visible on the roof dates from the building’s early days. You can still see portions of the original tin ceiling exposed near the back of the store, though the public area doesn’t extend to where the stage once was.

I’ll upload a few old ads in the near future, along with a brief history.
