Built in 1882 as the Apollo Opera House, this 720 seat venue turned to movies in the early years of the 20th century as the Apollo Theater.
During the 1920’s, world-famous organist and Princeton-native Virgil Fox, whose parents owned the Apollo Theatre at the time, accompanied the silents playing there as a teenager. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, Bailey Enterprises operated the theater.
When the Apollo Theatre was run by GKC Theatres in the 1980’s, it was twinned. Today, it is part of the Johnson Theaters chain, and shows first-run features.
