The Brookside Theatre opened in 1937 seating 601. Opened as a Fox theatre which became part of the Fox Anti Trust lawsuit then became part of the National Amusments, and finally a Mann theatre.
The Brookside and a very impressive from facade in a Corinthian style. The front came to a V at the top with molded leaves all along the roof. The theatre had a narrow front though and the box office was free standing.
When you entered the theatre it had an L shaped lobby with the concession on the right and then you went on around the lobby to another lobby in the back of the auditorium with the stairway to the balcony at the end. There were three aisles into the auditorium. The front had columns lining the walls on each side of the stage. Plush red velvet curtains adorned the stage.
The Brookside closed in 1977 The building was being renovated into a night club in January 1978 when a fire broke out and destroyed the building.
