Opened on May 11, 1914, with 1,100 seats, this neighborhood movie palace was home to plays, opera, and vaudeville before going movies-only. Ray Bolger danced here live, and Busby Berkeley directed plays here.
The non-theater part of the building housed an old ballroom, that, along with some storefronts, was demolished in the 1980’s to make way for four smaller screens to complement the big original theater, which has a huge balcony, screen, and a lot of style. By 2012, a 31-seat micro screen had been added.
Many concerts happen here, in addition to the current slate of movies. Since September 2016 it has hosted the annual 70mm & Widescreen Festival. This is a well-maintained and well-loved theater.
