Previous Names: Princess Theater, Marin Theater
The Princess Theater was opened on May 28, 1915, located on Water Street, (today renamed Bridgeway). It was renamed Gate Theater in the 1930’s. It was taken over by the Blumenfeld Theater Circuit in 1953. Closed as a movie theatre by the 1960’s, it was used for stage productions for several years.
I purchased a postcard with a shot of the marquee in it. The façade reads “Gate”, but the marquee reads “Marin Theater…"To Hell and Back” with Audie Murphy" which would put the shot around 1955 if it was the initial release.
The former theater now serves as an art gallery.
