Shubert-Garrick Theater

Designed by B. Stanley Simmons, the Casino Theater was opened on January 30, 1910 as a vaudeville theatre with motion pictures as part of the program. It never took off, being in the ‘wrong area, just out of picture row’. It was taken over by various operators and by Harry Crandall in 1918. In December 1918 it was taken over by the Shubert Brothers Theatre Company who redecorated the theatre and it reopened on January 6, 1919 as the Shubert-Garrick Theatre billing its as ‘a drawing room playhouse, not a picture theater’. It closed after only 14 years operation in 1924.
