The Turn Hall which was burned in 1954 was replaced by a new building on the same site which is still occupied by the Syracuse Turners. The original hall was opened to the public on December 26, 1869. The Turn Hall Theatre was showing movies at least as early as 1911, when the July 15 issue of The Moving Picture World published a letter dated June 3 from the manager of the house, J.J. Murphy.

After 40 years of diverse live programming and sporadic film offerings, the Syracuse Turn-Verein Hall / Turn Hall was transformed into a full-time movie theater in 1911 and had an amazing run to October 20, 1952 with a double feature of “Walk East on Beacon!” and “Montana Territory.” On October 21, 1952, it was all over with a fire that completely destroyed the venue.
