Following their success with the Comique Theatre the Koen Brothers next venture was to build the Federal. They also went on to operate additional theatres in and around Salem.

According to an article I found at Patch.com entitled Salem’s Long History of Movie Houses, the Federal was converted into an A & P Supermarket. There was also a bowling alley in the basement.
