Federation Theatre.

The Federation Theatre was opened on November 17, 1926 with Milton Sills in “Paradise”. It was equipped with a Page 2 manual organ. It was closed in 1968. There appeared to be some renovation type of work going on inside when we stopped by in mid-May 2010.

Owned by Semellcoth Theater Circuit 1935-1950?

If you go to the Google Map Satellite Photo and it’s working correct the American Flag mounted on a car antenna is right in front of the boxoffice.

Need more info and photos.

This theatre and all of the buildings on this block are owned by New Hope Church. We plan to renovate it and use it both for the church and community organization activities.

The Federation was one of 4 Dayton, Ohio theaters that had a Page Theater Pipe organ installed in it. I went to this theater over 100 time when I was a youngster.
