Proctor’s first opened on November 24th, 1913, with two-a-day vaudeville. Architect Arland Johnson also designed Proctor’s in Troy, NY, which opened the following year. Proctor’s Mount Vernon was part of a five-story office building which also had stores on the street level.
By the 1920s, Proctor’s had added movies to the programs. Vaudeville was dropped when all of the Proctor’s theatres became part of the RKO circuit at the start of the “talkies” era. For many years, RKO Proctor’s Mount Vernon was one of the chain’s four theatres in Westchester County, along with those in New Rochelle, Yonkers, and White Plains.
The Mount Vernon was the first to close, in the 1950s. Information about its existence after that would be appreciated.
