The 280-seat Conway Theatre makes its first appearance in Film Daily Year Book in 1946, suggesting a 1945 opening. Also listed is the 225-seat Opera House, and I don’t know that we can rule out a double-listing of a remodeled and renamed house. 1945 was a difficult year to open a new theater, given the strict ongoing limits on construction that prevailed for several years after the war. The Opera House was in operation by 1914, and the 1922 Cahn guide listed it with 250 seats, though FDY always listed it with 225 seats.
