This theatre began as a legitimate theatre. Helen Hayes performed in “Clarence” and “The Golden Age” in Nixon’s Apollo Theatre in 1919. The theatre was also used as a dance hall in the 1920’s. The front door was located on South New York Avenue but the side was along the world-famous Boardwalk.
It eventually was converted to a movie theatre and is listed in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook as the Apollo Theatre. It closed and was demolished in the 1970’s.
