Crescent Theater

The Crescent Theater opened in December 1913 and was located “between Main Street and the railroads”, probably closer to the former as the street is mostly residential and the vintage buildings still stand to this day. The American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915 gives the address as 23 Crandall Street, which is the other side of the railroad.

A commenter in a Facebook thread about this theater indicated it became a skating rink a few years later. The Crescent Theater had closed by 1926 and building no longer stands.

Following up on the Motion Picture Directory address, looking at 23 Crandall Street today, there is a large vacant lot (with pavement indicating the prior existence of a building) and the building next door matches the one in the picture closely enough (though not exactly) that it could possibly be the same.

If so, very strange place to put a theater, at the end of a dead end street by the railroad, though there is an ancient tunnel under the railroad that probably dates back to this period.
