The movie “Top of the World” launched the Garden Theatre on November 20, 1925. At the end of a ten-year lease, new operator American Amusement Circuit of Stubenville took on the theater soon becoming part of the Interstate Theatre Circuit. Under new ownership, the Garden received an extensive remodeling launching with “Modern Times” on February 29, 1936.

“The sign for the Garden was still on the building (it was a sign company, Tindalls, then) in the 1980s but it was covered up.”
