The marquee restoration looks like it’s finished, complete with what appears to be red and blue neon piping (hard to be sure driving by in daylight). A very nice job.

Times of Trenton story says they are restoring the marquee; a conscious decision was made to restore it rather than replace it to preserve the historical integrity of the building (what we like to hear). Story here.

The attraction boards have been taken off the north side of the marquee. Don’t know if it’s for repair or what.

This theatre was listed in the 1923 and 1925 Trenton City Directories as the S. Broad Street Theatre. By 1936 it was called the Broad Street Theatre.

By the way, the CYO opened on 6/13/1964. See the attached history link:

Still listed as part of RKO in the 1961 Film Daily Yearbook.
