The Elsinore Theatre

The Elsinore Theatre (StreetView)
The Elsinore Theater, which opened on May 28, 1926, is famous for its Gothic style architecture. Into the 1970's and 1980's, the Elsinore operated as a "first run" movie house. But with the decline of the facility, it became a "second run" house, and in the early 1990's the Elsinore closed. Act III Cinemas, which owned the theater building, gave it to the Salem Theater-Auditorium Group Enterprises, who with grants, renovated the historic space into a performing arts center. Classic movies are presented on many weekday evenings, and if the movie is a silent classic, then it is accompanied on the mighty Wurlitzer, 3 manual 26 rank, theater organ. Interestingly, the Elsinore's stage house was originally part of the Capital Theater on the other side of the block.
