The Venue

The 220 seat Gateway Playhouse was built around 1910 and initially used as a warehouse. Around 1920, the building was converted and used as a silent movie house until 1927 when the first talking film, The Jazz Singer, was released. When "Talkies" came into fashion, the building was leased by the Shriver Theatre Company, and became known as the Seaside Theater. In 1957 Prudential purchased the old Gateway Casino, originally located at the foot of the bridge to Ocean City (Rt. 52), to utilize for office space. The Gateway Casino was then forced to relocate operations, and so moved into the present location at Bay and Higbee Avenues.
