December 7th, 1920 grand opening ad in photo section. It was the Shubert theatre.

I think the book refers to the fire that destroyed the Main Street Theatre. Although on different streets, they were almost back-to-back. An old photo shows both their vertical signs almost next to each other over Main Street storefronts. See the listing for the Main Street I posted.

According to “Asbury Park’s Glory Days: The Story of an American Resort” page 91, this theater was lost to fire in the mid 1920s. It was owned by Walter Reade. He used part of the insurance money to fund building of the Mayfair.
