Unique Theatre

The Unique Theatre was opened by 1905. It was in late-July and early-August 1905 that Groucho Marx made his third set of public perfomances as a member of the Eugene Leroy Trio. The Unique Theatre became a full time movie theatre in 1910, but had closed by 1914.

“Why is it called unique?”

A number of Unique Theatres were associated with the Edison Unique Theatre circuit and would play, Edison-made films with Edison-centric equipment within their vaudeville shows.

Given its 1905 origin, it was very likely an Edison-heavy location but in their ads they just say they are showing “Unique-graph” films (see ad in photos). The films must have worked as the Unique turned all motion picture in 1910 according to the local paper.
