I believe this may be our family’s theater. My mother says this because there were other theaters on this street and but theirs was known as the Quincy Theater. If this is the correct one, it was her grandfather’s theater. It was started by John O'Neill. John O'Neill had once owned a string of slot machines that he and my grandfather would service in a horse and buggy. The theater was later run by his son William or Bill O'Neill. However, my mother was in Quincy and the theater was torn down and became a parking lot.

If someone knows to the contrary please let us know. It was not built as part of a chain. Please feel free to contact me with more information or pictures if you have them. Sincerely, Jean-Marie Panyard
