The Adelphi Theatre opened on July 7, 1913 on the corner of Elm Street and Church Street. It is unclear from internet map views if the building that is currently on the northeast corner of that intersection is the former theatre.

The Gem Theatre, which was also on Elm Street, had opened in 1907. Both theaters came under the same management in 1914.
