New York Avenue,
No one has favorited this theater yet
The Home Theater was another long-gone theater that graced the lower end of New York Avenue during Rochester’s heyday. I don’t have much information about it, but maybe some of the others on this site might have more information.
Sheet 04 of the 1914 Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps for Rochester show the Majestic Theater on Brighton Avenue, and an unnamed theater on New York Avenue, south of the long-vanished Lincoln Hotel. On sheet 05, between Kossuth Street and the Hotel Rochester, is another unnamed theater. One of them is the Home Theatre and the other is the Colonial Theatre, but I don’t know which is which. The Sanborn maps only designate each building as ‘Moving Pictures’.
The Home Theater was still open in 1929, but had closed by 1930, unable to install ‘talkie’ equipment.
