This silent-era theatre was launched in 1914 either here on Buttonwood Street or at 403-5 North 11th Street. Operators Samson E. King and Harry J. Whitman had an office in one of the address and a theatre in the other. It launched in 1914. In 1917, the theatre was sold to Walter C. Kantner who ran it to 1925.

The Franklin Theatre Circuit took on the Queen Theatre in 1925 giving it a makeover. At that time, Franklin was operating ten of Reading’s movie theatres. The Queen Theatre abdicated her throne in 1930. The building was retrofitted for other purposes.
