After the Final Curtain - a brief history of the theatre with photos from after the theatre was closed.
The Closing of Burlesque — 1957 (From the Newark Evening News: February 6, 1957)
“Harold Minsky, who brought burlesque to the old Adams Theater in August 1953, said the 50 permanent employees at the theater had received one-week layoff notices. He said tomorrow night’s last show, beginning at 10 o'clock, would ring down the curtain.”
“Minsky estimated that Newark now is one of only 15 to 20 cities in the country where burlesque shows operate.”
The theatre continued to show moving pictures into the 1980s when it was closed.
