The Savar Theatre opened on April 15, 1936 with The Dionne Quintuplets in “The Country Doctor”. This strikingly modern theatre must have really stood out amongst the mostly traditional architecture of downtown Camden.
Savar is a contraction of the name of theatre owner Samuel Varbalow; his Savar Corporation would operate several theatres in and around Camden as late as the 1970’s. This flagship house wouldn’t last that long; it closed in 1964 and was demolished soon after.
