Built in the 1920’s as the Crescent Theatre, this was a neighborhood theatre that mostly served the Fairview section of Camden. It had a one-level auditorium and capacity was 834 (in 1951). By 1931 it was operated by Hunt’s Theaters Inc. By 1957 it was operated by A.M. Ellis Theaters Co. chain.
The Crescent Theatre closed around January 24, 1971 with “Soldier Blue”. It reopened a few months later as the adults-only Venus Art Theatre. Real estate records in the 1970’s showed the owner as A.M. Ellis Theatres of Philadelphia. The Venus Art Theatre closed in the mid-1980’s. By 1986 the building had been remodeled for its present use as a tire store and automotive service facility.
