The T & D Theatre opened on November 22, 1916 with Marguerite Clark in “Miss George Washington” & Dustin Farnum in “A Son of Erin”. It was equipped with a Wurltzer Hope-Jones Unit Orchestra organ. The single balcony was reached by a series of ramps, rather than conventional stairs. The projection booth was located at the rear of the orchestra seating area. By the early-1970’s it had been renamed T & D Follies, presenting burlesque live on stage and adult movies, using the orchestra seating only. It ended its life in 1976, showing a lot of “T&A” films for an adult audience. It was demolished in 1978.
