The Tivoli was one of several neighborhood theaters in the city operated by the Famous Players chain. Probably built c1927 since it was reported that an organ was installed in that year. There was no stage house or orchestra pit and the organ console sat immediately below the screen on the auditorium floor. The interior decor was simplified art deco.
Movie fare was mostly second run double features. Saturday kids matinees consisted usually of serials and cartoons.
The theater was closed in 1958 and the interior was totally gutted in the conversion to a supermarket. A succession of food markets has occupied the building since then. The early 1950’s era marquee remains with the Tivoli name removed and is used currently to advertise weekly specials on the plastic end panels.
