Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

Though it opened around 1920 as the "Bridge," this theater was known for a short time in the late '20s as the "Kozy." The original name returned shortly, and the theater closed temporarily in March 1935. Resuscitated, the Bridge remained in business until March 16, 1953. The final double feature was comprised of "The Clown" and "The Well". Bethesda Healing Revival Temple occupied the building for a while, and the address later belonged to Natural Bridge Auto Parts. Looking at the shallow lot that's now at the Bridge's address, one is led to believe that address numbers must have shifted over the years; a theater could hardly have existed in this space.
