The Electric Theatre was a nickelodeon which opened in the late-1900’s. It was enlarged and reopened as the Lafayette Theater in December 1913. All seating was on a single level. Entry was through a tall arch located on Kensington Street, with the auditorium set well back along a passage. It was closed as a silent movie theatre in 1929.
Today, the imposing arched façade is still partly recognizable but pretty damaged. It is used as an entrance to an adjacent car-wash. The auditorium is in use for multiple purposes for the community. The tenants said it has been totally gutted.
