The Cornell Theatre was opened on November 18, 1949 and had two main aisles that ran down the theatre. The theater was perhaps best known for its neon-laden marquee with the words ‘Cornell’ scrawled across it.
Inside the auditorium, all seating was on a single level. There were Art Deco style ‘swirls’ on the side-walls and on each side of the proscenium. The curved ceiling contained ‘twinkling star’ lights, giving a semi-Atmospheric style to the decoration.
The Cornell Theatre was demolished in 1980 after closing in 1978.
