Previous Names: Coleman Theatre, Louis Theatre, Borinquen Theatre
Originally opened in 1919 as the Coleman Theatre, by 1930 it had been renamed Louis Theatre. I attended this theatre during the early-1940’s when I lived two blocks away. Then it was then named the Jackson Theatre (I lived at 711 Jackson Avenue). I remember the Saturday matinees where for 25 cents the kids in the area could see three full length films plus a cartoon and adventure serial. There also was the overweight matron in her white uniform who walked the aisles trying to keep the kids quiet.
The theatre was finally renamed Borinquen Theatre and was still open in 1957 operated by Harris Theatrical Enterprises. It later closed and is now a grocery store.
