Smalley's Theater in Oxford NY

Smalleys Theatre was opened November 15, 1937. Research in the 1970’s done based on old newspaper articles indicates this theatre closed in 1952.

The empty building was adjacent to the Victory supermarket, and was still standing as late as the early-1990’s, but has since been demolished.

Smalley’s Oxford Theatre first appears in 1937 in this finding aid to the records of Smalley’s Theatres held by the New York State Historical Association. That is most likely the year it was built.

I just updated the street view to get the site right. If you’re looking at a parking lot with a large, low green building in the distance, that’s where it was.

OxfordHistorian – This is the only image I could find of Smalley’s Theater in Oxford, NY. The theater sat to the back of the parking lot facing toward the village park (East).

Nice job finding this photo! I’ve been searching for a long time, no luck.
