Listed in the 1941 edition of Film Daily Yearbook with a seating capacity of 500. In the 1943 edition, seating is given as 450 and the theatre is Closed. In the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. it is open again with 450 seats.

Sorry, a correction to my last posting. The 1941 Film Daily Yearbook doesn’t list the Apollo Theatre. It does however list a Paragon Theatre with 450 seats, which in the 1943 edition of F.D.Y. is also listed as Closed. Could the Paragon Theatre be a former name for the Apollo Theatre being they have the same seating capacity and are both listed as closed in the same edition (a possible mis-print).

I think I saw this building on my bike trip 2 weeks ago. It’s located a block away from the main street but the only building that looked like a theater at this spot was #26 and it’s on the opposite side.

The cornerstone says 1926 and the awning says “St. Rocco Society”.

Here are the pictures of the building of which I speak.

In the 1916 Motion Picture Directory it was announced that a $14,000 theatre was to be erected by the Van Voorhees Brothers for Paragon Theatres. This might explain the Apollo/Paragon reference made by Ken Roe above.
