The Leonia Theatre opened on September 29, 1927. The auditorium featured a central dome in the ceiling which was decorated with painted cloud effects. It was equipped with a Kimball theatre organ. The house programmed movies and vaudeville, but was also equipped for stage plays, and in its early years hosted a number of tryouts for Broadway shows.
The theatre operated for less than a decade. In 1938 the auditorium floor was leveled and converted into a roller skating rink. Eventually the rink came under the control of the municipal government, which today uses the the building as a community recreation center.
