Happy 100th, Baker Theater!

DOVER, NJ — Yesterday, the Baker Theater celebrated its 100th Birthday. In great shape after a recent renovation, the theater currently hosts as many as ten events each month.

When it opened 100 years ago with the showing of a romantic play, the Baker Theater was billed as the largest and finest vaudeville playhouse in New Jersey and the surrounding region.

The theater then went through ups and downs as it transformed over decades from a major vaudeville playhouse to a movie theater — it featured the first talking motion picture shown in Morris County — to a rock concert hall to its current state as a venue for weddings, sweet-16 parties, concerts and shows.
