Night detail

The Aladdin Theater opened as Geller’s Theater and was originally a vaudville theater for Jack Benny and other popular entertainment of the times.

Starting in the 1930’s, the theater was transformed into a neighborhood mom and pop movie house.

In later years, the business went sour and the theater was forced to show adult films for 20 years before ownership changed.

The Aladdin Theater is now a popular live music club.

Aladdin is a concert venue, not a cinema. A good concert venue, but still – not a cinema.

Here’s a puzzling item from the January 3, 1928, issue of The Film Daily: “Portland, Ore. — The Geller opened on Foster Road just before Christmas.”

Did the magazine get the location wrong, or did Portland have more than one Geller Theatre?
