The Princess theatre opened in 1918 seating 820. The three story red brick building had a balcony and a fairly large lobby. The marquee in the front hung over the entrance doors and had a three level attraction panel board. The front windows of the theater were outlined with a corninthian marble to offset the red brick facade.

The Princess continued operations until 1966 when it quietly closed.

Looks like Chuck says, at least the marquee glass has been repaired does anyone know if the interior has been gutted or just sitting there since 1966? Does not look to bad on the outside to have been closed that long.
