Yesterday, after Gossips reported on the plans for the Warren Inn and included a photograph of the building when it was the Warren Theater, Bruce Mitchinson, whose father was the projectionist at the theater, sent two more pictures of the building, taken in 1938 and 1939.
Just west of the theater in both pictures is the original Columbia Diner, which opened in 1935.
In 1946, when the new Columbia Diner--now the location of Grazin'--opened a few doors down the block, this building was moved out to the corner of Routes 66 and 9H and became the Brick Tavern Crossroads. Neither the original diner building nor the Brick Tavern survives today.
