In 1937 John and Arthur Tegu of the St. Johnsbury, VT, Tegu Theatre Circuit bought the Portland Street Burke Block and demolished it. They constructed a modern 650 seat theatre which has been referred to as “Vermont’s Little Radio City”.

I have not found any information as to when or why it closed.

Currently it has been remodeled into commercial space called the Tegu Building and houses and art gallery and municipal offices.

I have uploaded a postcard image of the theatre and a photo of a theatre poster being offered for sale on Proxibid.

Vermont’s “Little Radio City”, the Tegu Theatre, launched September 10, 1937 with “Vogues of 1938” supported by highlights of the Joe Louis and Tommy Farr fight and a Mickey Mouse cartoon. At launch, the Tegu boasted of its Simplex projection and the same RCA sound system that they have at the Radio City Music Hall… only smaller. The Tegu closed at the end of its 20-year lease with “Top Secret Affair” on June 12, 1957.
