The 1,200-seat Meserole opened in the first half of the 1920s as part of the Small & Strausberg circuit. Due to a series of acquisitions and name changes, the theater subsequently operated under the Fox, Randforce, and United Artists banners. After being shuttered by UA in the early 1980s, the building has housed a roller disco, a discount store, and a Genovese - now Eckerd - pharmacy. Amazingly, most of the interior detail has been preserved despite its many reuses.
