Hanover Theatre is the latest, and arguably one of the most successful incarnations of the building originally known as the Franklin Square Theater, which was built in 1904. It later became known as the Grand Theater. Major additions and changes were made to the building in 1925. In 1967, it was converted into Showcase Cinemas owned by National Amusements Inc. The movie theater was successful for years, before closing in late 1990s.
