The Steuben is still listed as open in the 1967 IMPA. However, there was some lag time involved with the printing, so it’s possible that the theater was closed by that time as Lost Memory mentioned in the caption. According to the IMPA, the operator in 1967 was Dipson Management Company, headquartered in Batavia.

I’m not surprised that this theatre is no longer with us after reading “the operator in 1967 was Dipson Management Company, headquartered in Batavia.” They owned the Wintergarden in Jamestown for a period of time and then decided to walk away and build a multi-plex on the outskirts of town! For a theatre minded company they don’t seem to have any regard for the historically beautiful of another era!!!!!

The Theater actually still stands today although you would not recognize it. It is located on the Broadway Mall in Hornell and was converted into a club, then became a bar, and the last I knew it was an AMVETs office. If you stand across the street near the Texas Cafe you can still see the outline of the marquee and remnants of its past life. I have not been inside and I would be interested to see if any of the original walls or ceiling are hidden under false walls or drop ceilings.

It would be a shame to think that the original walls or ceiling are hidden under false walls or drop ceilings! Hornell lost a truly great theatre, architecturally!

“It was a cool looking theatre. Just wasn’t taken care of.” Sad scenerio!

If it was a club at one time, the slanted floor was probably leveled. Hope someone posts on the current status of this art deco theatre that was and should still be in Hornell. Was or is there a theatre in nearby Arkport NY?

Is this theatre closed or demolished? I hope not the latter?

Lost: This theatre built by Irving and Mary Cohen is connected to the Allendale Theatre in Buffalo which is still standing. Since you added this theatre can you confirm this theatre has been demolished? thought I was told by a CT member who lives near Hornell that it is still standing!
