On November 29, 1926, the swanky New Branford Theatre opened on the site of Cranford’s old Township building with Noah Beery Sr. (Berry) starring in the silent film “Padlocked” packing 1,300 seats, a stage, and a $18,000 Wurlitzer pipe organ. On January 27, 1927, a issue over the name of the theater was ironed out and the “B” on the electric sign was replaced with a “C” and the new signs were lit with the name "Cranford Theatre". Giddy with excitement, the Cranford Chronicle gushed: “The New Branford is Dead. Long live the New Cranford.”

The Mr. Local History Historic Village Collection is a step back in time to honor local iconic New Jersey historic treasures selected as key to all those who support local history.
