The Victoria was at 103 West Broad Street. The Salvation Army’s new building is on the site.

In 1963, the Victoria was operated by Victoria Amusement Enterprises of Shamokin. William Troutman was president. Other theaters in the chain at that time were the Victorias in Mahanoy City, Mt. Carmel and Shamokin.

The Victoria was actually open in the late ‘70s. As a child, I saw both Star Wars (1977) and Grease (1978) there. It probably closed for good in the early '80s.

A Moller organ, opus 2716, was installed in this theater in 1919. In 1925 it was replaced by another Moller, opus 4355.
