Originally opened in 1919 as the Coleman Theatre, by 1930 it had been renamed Louis Theatre. I attended this theater during the early-1940’s when I lived two blocks away. Then it was then named the Jackson Theatre (I lived at 711 Jackson Avenue). I remember the Saturday matinees where for 25 cents the kids in the area could see three full length films plus a cartoon and adventure serial. There also was the overweight matron in her white uniform who walked the aisles trying to keep the kids quiet.
The theater was finally renamed Borinquen Theatre before it closed and is now a grocery store.
I would like to receive all available information on the Jackson Theatre as well as hear from others who remember it.
