Allen Theater

The Allen Theater burned in early December 2009. I was sent these photos of it today.

It opened in 1951 with 946 seats and was closed as a theater in 1990.

The L-shaped diner is very original, other than the carpeting, and in excellent repair.

Photo of the Korner Diner’s old neon, reading “Newark Diner”. I have another picture, of the diner as Jimmy’s but I can’t seem to find it at the moment. It was also known as Jude’s.
