The West Side Theater was located at 214 N. Main Avenue in Scranton, PA. This was a very large neighborhood theater serving the city west side, which was opened by Comerford Theaters Inc. on November 1, 1926. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Frank Walker. By 1950 it was again operated by Comerford Theaters Inc.
It operated until the mid-1980’s when a fire damaged part of the theater. The auditorium was demolished but the three-story front offices and apartments still exist today.
