Columbia Theatre

The Columbia Theatre was in existence in the first decade of the 20th Century and showing films. It was located on the left side of Bank Street, looking north. From a surviving postcard mailed in 1912 it appears to have been a plain wooden structure. It survived until 1935 when it was razed. Additional information on the theatre would be appreciated.

Here is a vintage postcard, mailed in 1912, showing Bank Street with the Columbia Theatre on the left. At the bottom of the vertical marquee with the name “Columbia” are the words “moving pictures.”
