This was a vaudeville house, and opened as the Columbia Theatre in 1913 as part of the B.S. Moss chain. Movies were screened as part of the program. It had turned to a movies only policy by 1926. It was equipped with a Smith 2 manual 8 ranks organ. It had an Airdome which screened movies only. By 1941, it was part of the RKO circuit.
Last operated by an independent operator as the Town Theatre for a short while from 1970. When the Mott Street area declined, so did the movie attendance here, and this theatre shut its doors. The theatre has been demolished.
