The Adelphi Theater likely opened in the 1920’s. Its original name was the “Cum-Bac”, probably a words play for Come Back. It was a two stories structure, with apartments in the second floor. It had 460 seats. The name was changed from Cum-Back to Adelphi in 1936 after renovations designed by the firm of Kaplan and Sprachman. The theater probably closed in 1956 and now is a church.
