Madison Memorial Theater

The Opera House was opened prior to 1926 when it was operated by W.A. Partello. On August 28, 1927 it was renamed Madison Memorial Theater and was operated by the Skirball Brothers. In early-1928 a Wurlitzer Style B X Special theatre pipe organ Opus 1822 was installed. It had 2 manuals and 5 ranks in two chambers. The Madison Memorial Theater was destroyed in an overnight fire on February 10, 1929. Two men lost their lives fighting the blaze.

A new Madison Theatre was built on the site to the designs of architect John Eberson and it opened September 15, 1931 and has its own page on Cinema Treasures.
