This was the workinghorse theatre of Waverly, eclipsed by the palatial Boulevard for most of its life. This was the favorite of kids seeking a Saturday afternoon thrill. Opened in 1909 and closed in 1969, the building is still there, though you have to stare at the "Shoe Fair" for a while to realize that you're looking at the silhouette of the old theatre. Up close, it's a bit more obvious as the old terrazzo carriage lobby floor is still there.
