Closed on May 29, 1966 after being destroyed by a fire, with only a single injury being reported.

OK, I grabbed a shot this afternoon. There is a new facade on the building (2019), although it is made to look vintage. I believe 117 is the rebuilt structure from the 1960s, where the old theater once stood.

I have added a screen grab of the building. Google incorrectly shows 115 Spring Street as 117. It is now a blank, brick facade, and proportionately, not the same size as the theater building. A fire would have likely resulted in a complete demolition, with this 60s (?) rebuild.

I believe that the current building is not the original theater. I’m in JC right now, and will check it out.

there was a fire sometime in the early 60’s but the building was renovated and was a furniture store for awhile. It still stands.
