The Forum Theatre opened June 25, 1928 for motion pictures and stage shows. The marquee was decorated with neon glass tubes in orange and blue. The theatre was 92' x 319' and all seating was on the main floor. It had a Kilgen organ on a lift, a large orchestra pit and a fully equipped stage. In the 1940’s, the Forum Theatre is listed as being operated by Stanley-Warner.
Sometime after 1950 it was re-named Ellis Theatre and by the 1970’s it was showing X-rated movies as the Xtassy Theatre, closing in the late-1970’s to be subsequently demolished. The facade and foyer were saved and are in use as a liquor store.
