In February 1911, an unidentified exhibitor rented tiny Canda Hall in the Borough of Roosevelt (now Carteret) New Jersey, and began presenting motion picture shows 6 days a week, calling the venue Dreamland Theatre.
In April new management took over, changing its name to the Electric Theatre, adding vaudeville, illustrated songs and other attractions to the film presentations twice weekly. It closed briefly during the summer, reopening under the same management in late August.
Management changed once more before it closed in late-March or early-April 1912.
There are records of moving picture shows being presented at other local halls dating back to early-1909. They however operated one or two nights a week and were short lived. While only having a life of about 14 months, Canda Hall, as first Dreamland Theatre and then the Electric Theatre, is the earliest known venue to present motion pictures on an almost (generally 4-6 days/week) daily schedule in Carteret.
