The Camelot was orignialy called the CIRCLE, the same name as the bar next door. NGT theatres ran the Camelot in tne early 60's, Joe Busic was the DM, it was advertised as a "Nice place to Go", lots of family shows and Good first run features. I belived that "Zorba the Greek" playyed there exclusive for its first run engagement. I saw the "Unsinkable Molly Brown " there in the early 60's, the lobby reminded me of the Rivera & the Ramona with the Tower/collum formatr.

I was an usher at the Camelot during Walt’s time. 1,000 seat ( approx ) auditorium. Best job I’ve ever had. Working with Walt, Rick, Tom, Gary etc. Fascinating theatre. It had a crows nest to watch the parking lot. Upstairs/ Basement storage rooms. Our usher group found a way to walk above the ceiling on a catwalk all the way out to the front roof & inside the lit marque. Ushers room parties in back. so much fun !.

The Camelot was around until the late 80s or early 90s, if memory serves. It became a dollar movie theater sometime in the 80s (perhaps it was $1. 50). Sadly, the theater was in very poor condition. The patrons were always pushy, the floors sticky and the snack bar poorly stocked. Of course, for the price, you got what you paid for.

Yes, the Camelot was called the Circle Theatre and was built in the late 30's by my grandfather, Joesph Stoia and his partner Joesph Miskinis. It opened for bessiness on Nov. 12, 1937. New owners changed the name in 1963 to the Camelot.

Originally a single screen theatre, it was eventually tri-plexed. It closed sometime in the mid 1990's.
