The Castle Theatre was opened by B.S. Moss Enterprises adjacent to the Castles by the Sea Dance Hall as a venue for photoplays and vaudeville on June 28, 1923. Films were shown Monday – Wednesday; vaudeville presentations by B.F. Keith the balance of the week. This was a seasonal operation.
For the 1928 Summer Season which began on June 16th, management was taken over by the Keith-Albee circuit solely as a venue for films. The opening presentation was “The Last Command” with Emil Jannings.
Within a couple of years the Castle Theatre came under the management of the Werba Theatre chain. When they filed for bankruptcy in 1930 Ruggoff & Becker assumed management.
In May 1932 when Rugoff & Becker built their Laurel Theatre in Long Beach, the Castle Theatre solely presented Broadway shows.
It was a venue for WPA shows at the time it was damaged in the devastating July 1936 fire that swept the Boardwalk and was subsequently demolished.
