News About This Theater
Located at Clement Street and 9th Avenue. The Coliseum Theatre opened November 22, 1918 and its film was “Johanna Enlists” starring Mary Pickford. It was equipped with a Robert-Morton organ. Originally designed in a Greek Revival style by the Reid Brothers, it was renovated numerous times with an Art Deco style in the 1931 to the plans of architect S. Charles Lee. It was badly damaged by an early morning fire on July 2, 1935. It recieved some rather tacky modernism in the 1950’s.
The Coliseum Theatre hung on until October 17, 1989, when it was closed. In 2000, the theatre was gutted, ending any hope for a comeback for the former movie palace.
