The Princeton Playhouse opened in 1937 (images in photos) as part of a $6 million project that included a square of businesses around the Nassau Inn. It ran for more than 40 years and was demolished on December 27, 1980. Princeton University brought the repertory cinema to its end in 1980 and sold the property for $17 million.
