L. J. Chamberlain and J. M. Shindel opened the Theatorium on August 28, 1907. A few years later Chamberlain bought Shindel’s share of the business, and in 1912 he hired theater architect William Harold Lee to design a major expansion of the house.
The Theatorium reopened on September 20, 1912, with 700 seats: 500 on the main floor and 200 in the balcony. The narrow house was elaborately decorated both inside and on the facade, which featured the triumphal arch motif then popular for movie theaters.
In 1926 Chamberlain opened the much larger Victoria Theatre, and the older house was reduced to second runs. The Theatorium was last listed in the Film Daily Yearbook in 1928.
