The theater was said to be the largest and grandest in the town. Closed late-1940’s and converted to retail space. First floor hardware store to the late-1960’s. Demolished in 1970 to make way for a gas station.

It wasn’t the largest — that was the Hollywood, with 999 seats and a cavernous space. The Hollywood was one of the three largest auditoriums between Pittsburgh and Maryland/D.C.

I have always heard nice things about this theater, but never anything about it being ‘grand’ or ‘opulent.’

Streetview is wrong, shows the empty lot where the Hollywood used to be.
