Plainfield Theatre

The Lilly Theatre was opened prior to 1916 with 300-seats. It was housed in a brick building which it shared with the post office. It had closed by 1928. It appears again in 1929 seating 638. In 1938 seating was listed as 650.

From around 1940 it was renamed Plainfield Theatre with 600-seats. By 1950 the Plainfield Theatre was listed with 740-seats and was still operating in 1957. It was demolished and a supermarket was built on the site.

I have uploaded a photo of the Lilly sharing a building with the post office. According to the local historian this substantial building on Railroad Avenue underwent many changes before it was demolished in the 1950s only to be replace by a supermarket.

It can be assumed that the various seating expansion could easily have been accomplished on site. At some point it became the Plainfield.
