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!

The third thumbnail from the bottom in the right column on this web page shows the Steuben Theatre in 1939. This was the year it became a Warner house. It had a nice Streamline Modern marquee and glass tile front.

Wiliam T. Spann, Buffalo architect, drew the original plans
