Anyone know a street or address for this?

The theater, in spite of the name, was never intended to become an “art house.”

I was the original manager for the small, single screen theater. I think it only sat about 300 people comfortably (about the size of the Greenwood in Trenton, NJ. It had Cinemamechanica projectors and automation in the booth with 6000 and 9000 foot free wheeling reels. It was owned by the Tommaro Brothers, produce and fruit distributors in Hamilton, NJ, and directed by Tony Tommaro. I do not believe it ever became a money maker. It was originally going to be a part of the Jerry Lewis Theater Chain but that organization went bankrupt.

Although the title suggests an art house, it seems the last few years B action movies played here.
