The Jefferson Theatre stood at the corner of Cordova Street and Cathedral Place in the heart of the “old city” of St. Augustine.
Built in 1907, the Jefferson Theatre began as an opera and vaudeville house and later went to silent films.
The entrance portion of the theatre was a four-story building with arched windows on the upper story adorned with a continuous brick lintel.
During the silent era, there was a large (possibly lit) roof sign that said ‘Jefferson Theatre’.
In 1927, a small two-manual Robert Morton theatre organ was installed, (blower number 20290).
In the 1940’s, the Jefferson Theatre was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary E.J. Sparks. The theatre was razed around 1955 when the St. Augustine National Bank purchased the property and erected a new bank building on the site. This bank later became Barnett Bank in 1971, and is now a branch of the Bank of America.
