This rather substantial Airdome is shown on the 1914 Sanborn, replacing a house on the same corner on the 1907 map. It is a large wooden structure of one story, with an angled cut-off on the corner facing the intersection. The address is shown as 301 and 305.

The front section (about the first 20 feet or so) was covered, but the rest excepting seemingly the stage, was open. There were electric footlights for the stage, so live performances were also a feature. This is noted as being used only during the summer.

At some point, this theater and a small house behind it were replaced by the current Princeton Theater building.

Note that the index for the map calls this the ‘Airdome Theatre’. The buildings listed by name are almost always the actual business name, so ‘Airdome’ may not have been a generic title.
