Here is the Coliseum Cinema, recently reopened, and much altered from its original state when it was built in 1920. Cinema Treasures has a brief history of the theater and you can find much other information in the many, many, many comments that follow, including this link to a photograph of the theater soon after it was built. These people love their old movie theaters.
